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

309a. I am Jesus' Little Lamb

1 I am Jesus' little Lamb,
Therefore glad at heart I am;
Jesus love me, Jesus knows me,
All that's good and fair He shows me,
Tends me every day the same,
Even calls me by my name.

2 Out and in safely go,
Want and hunger never know;
Soft green pastures He discloseth,
Where His happy flock reposeth;
When I faint or thirsty be,
To the brook He leadeth me.

3 Should not I be glad all day
In this blesséd fold to stay?
By this holy Shepherd tended,
Whose kind arms, when life is ended,
Bear me to the world of light?
Yes! oh yes, my lot is bright.
