Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

The Church of God

Full Text

1 I love the church of God,
The house that Jesus built,
And purchased by the precious blood,
For us He freely spilt.

Upon the sure foundation,
Not laid by human hand,
The glorious Rock, Christ Jesus,
The church shall ever stand.

2 Thou blessed bride of Christ!
Oh, lovely one, so pure!
Eternity adds bliss to bliss;
Thy happiness is sure. [Refrain]

3 Redeemed by Christ alone,
Cleansed in His precious blood;
Secure while endless ages roll,
Kept by the pow’r of God. [Refrain]

4 The Bridegroom soon will come,
His bride arrayed in white,
Unto Himself He will receive,
To dwell in endless light. [Refrain]
