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 Hymnary.org, 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,
Harry Plantinga

1. O blessèd, blessèd Bible,
Our treasured book divine,
With hope, and joy, and comfort,
Thy pages brightly shine.

Refrain
More precious still than rubies,
More pure than purest gold,
Our blessèd, blessèd Bible,
Thy worth can ne’er be told.

2. Thou tellest us of Jesus,
The Son of God above,
Who came the world to ransom,
So great His wondrous love. [Refrain]

3. O blessèd, blessèd Bible,
That God Himself hath giv’n,
To fit us for His kingdom,
Of endless life in Heav’n. [Refrain]
