Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
