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.

648. Dear Saviour, as in Olden Days

1 Dear Saviour, as in olden days,
On childhood’s sunny brow,
Thy hands with blessing Thou did’st lay,
O bless the children now.

2 In many lands the children dear,
To idols bow each day;
O send the name of Jesus there,
And teach them how to pray.

3 How joyous will the echo sound
When all the children sing
Their sweetest songs of pray’r and praise,
And own the Saviour King.
