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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Wonderful Bible! Book of God;
Guide and counsel to mortals giv’n;
Lamp to the path by the ransomed trod,
Lighting the way from earth to heav’n.

Shine, O wonderful light divine,
Lamp of Truth, in this dark world shine,
Shine thro’ the night of doubts and fears,
Shine till the morn of God appears!

2 Wonderful Bible! Law of the Lord;
All its precepts in grace abound;
And in their keeping is great reward;
Life everlasting there is found. [Refrain]

3 Wonderful Bible! Radiance bright;
Ray serene from the world above,
Fairest of stars in the humanity’s night,
Fill now our hearts with light and love. [Refrain]
