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

Representative Text

1 We love the good old Bible,
We love it more and more,
And ev’ry time we read it,
WE find a treasure store;
It stands the test of ages,
So wonderful, so true,
It tells a Saviour-story,
So old, yet ever new.

The Bible, the Bible,
We love the dear old Bible;
Our teacher it shall ever be,
The Bible, the Bible.

2 We love the good old Bible,
Which lights us on our way,
A lamp to guide us ever
With bright and cheering ray;
It is the word which conquers,
With power from on high,
The bread from heaven given,
Soul-hunger to supply. [Refrain]

3 We love the good old Bible,
For when our skies are drear,
Within its blessed pages
We find our hope and cheer;
Like jewels they are gleaming,
Those words of tender love
Which tell a Father’s goodness,
And point to joys above. [Refrain]
