We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1. I am standing on the Word of God,
Which came to men of old;
The Holy Book our fathers loved,
And treasured more than gold.

Refrain
I am standing, standing on the Word,
Though the earth change and decay,
It shall never, never pass away,
I am standing on the Word of God.

2. I am standing on the Word of God,
’Tis holy and ’tis true;
Through ages it has been our light,
With splendor ever new. [Refrain

3. I am standing on the Word of God,
’Tis full of life divine;
God’s Spirit lives in ev’ry word,
And moves in ev’ry line. [Refrain]

4. I am standing on the Word of God,
And thus I am secure;
Though blows the tempest wild and hard,
’Twill evermore endure. [Refrain]

5. I am standing on the Word of God,
And on my dying bed
I’ll share its consolations, Lord,
When death’s dark vale I tread. [Refrain]
