Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Take the Bible with you

Take the dear old Bible with you

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Take the dear old Bible with you,
Men of toil, where’er you go.
It will strength and comfort give you;
Read its truth and you shall know.

Precious book, sacred book,
Word of God,
And Guide to heaven.

2 Take the dear, old Bible with you,
As a shield from every snare.
When dark clouds begin to gather,
Read this book, then bow in prayer. [Refrain]

3 How the Precious Story thrills us,
How it lightens every care.
With this Manna daily feed us,
With thy yoke our burdens share. [Refrain]
