Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

Representative Text

1. Truth divine, by angels spoken,
Clothed in strains of music grand;
Like a chain with links unbroken,
Like a rock on which we stand.

Refrain:
Rock of truth, on thee abiding,
Thus protected we shall be,
In Jehovah’s presence hiding
Unto all eternity.

2. Truth divine, we own its Author,
Maker of eternal things,
Praise to him we gladly offer
For the hope and grace it brings.

3. We thy counsel, Lord, have taken,
Creeds are crumbling ’neath our feet:
Here we stand, by sin unshaken,
Here we reign in grace complete.

4. God of love, we meekly pray thee,
Light and life to us impart:
Uncondemned, we will obey thee,
Dwell thou ever in our heart.
