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.
1 Love the Bible, blessèd book of heav’nly truth,
Words of beauty shining, love and duty twining;
Bear it daily in the tender heart of youth,
Every thought and word refining.
This is the power of God unto life,
Wisdom’s sacred precepts for the way;
Sword of Spirit, giving victory in the strife—
God’s own book, the blessèd Bible.
2 Know the Bible, read its pages o’er and o’er,
Gathering treasure surest, finding pleasure purest,
Of His power and mercy learning more and more—
Thus true wisdom thou securest. [Refrain]
3 Live the Bible, in the life its precepts show,
Humbly praying ever, work delaying never;
Thus in life and death thy trusting heart shall know
Peace, sweet peace, that none can sever. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #11164
