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.
Harry Plantinga

93. We Want to Be Like Jesus

1 We want to be like Jesus
In all we do and say;
We want his loving kindness
To shine through us each day.

2 We want to be like Jesus
And serve him from our youth,
Resisting all temptation,
Believing in his truth.

3 We want to be like Jesus;
We pray that God above
Will send his Holy Spirit
To help us share his love.
