Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

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

O thou sacred book

Full Text

1 O thou sacred Book—may thy light divine
With its healing balm ’round the wide world shine!
May thy words of truth and thy tender grace
Be our comfort in every place.

Refrain:
Word of God! Word of life!
As a rock thy truth shall stand;
Thro’ the storm and calm
Thou wilt keep us true,
And will lead us to God’s right hand.

2 ’Tis the herald of our salvation dear,
For it bringeth God’s lovingkindness near;
In His grace we trust, in His love we live,
And our wand’rings He doth forgive. [Refrain]

3 May we ever all thy commandments keep,
Filling all our hearts like a fountain deep,
Flowing forth into everlasting peace,
Where the woes of the world shall cease. [Refrain]
