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

Full Text

1 To learn of Jesus Christ, our Lord,
We need to read His holy Word;
The precious lessons we must heed,
And ask of Him the grace we need.

Refrain:
O holy Teacher, Friend and Guide,
With us for evermore abide;
May we be taught from Heav’n above
The wondrous lessons of Thy love.

2 We learn of Jesus’ wondrous birth,
His sinless life while here on earth,
We hear His invitation free,
Come, take My yoke, and learn of Me. [Refrain]

3 The Book divine, oh, may we prize,
Where all this heav’nly wisdom lies;
These lessons may we learn by heart,
And early choose the better part. [Refrain]
