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, 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

The Bible

Full Text

1 We love to read the Bible,
The blessed Word of God,
It teaches us the pathway
By Christ the Saviour trod.
A lamp to guide our footsteps,
A light to point the way,
Unto the homes eternal
Beyond the shadows gray.

We love the Bible,
And read its pages o’er;
To store our minds with treasures,
Of rich and heav’nly lore.

2 We love to read the Bible,
Our hearts within us burn,
As there the sweet old story
Of Jesus’ love we learn.
O precious, precious Bible,
At morn, at noon, or night,
We meditate, like David,
Upon it with delight. [Refrain]
