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. The Bible of our fathers
Is the blessèd Word of God,
Its pages are inspirèd—
By its light our fathers trod.

Refrain
The Bible of our fathers is the book for me,
The Bible of our fathers, let it ever be;
The Bible of our fathers is good enough for me,
The Bible of our fathers, our hope eternally.

2. The Bible of our fathers:
Its great promises are true,
They never fail believers;
Trust, its Gospel will save you! [Refrain]

3. The Bible of our fathers,
Though attacked without, within,
Is still rejoicing millions
It is saving from their sin. [Refrain]

4. The Bible of our fathers,
Only those who preach it whole
Are reaching dying sinners,
Bringing peace to the lost soul.
Refrain

5. The Bible of our fathers,
In the judgment day will be
The only book remaining,
Save the book of life we’ll see.
Refrain
