Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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

The Church of God

Representative 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]
