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.

364. Let Children Hear the Mighty Deeds

1 Let children hear the mighty deeds
which God performed of old;
which in our younger years we saw,
and which our fathers told.

2 He bids us make his glories know,
his works of pow'r and grace;
and we'll convey his wonders down
through ev'ry rising race.

3 Our lips shall tell them to our sons,
and they again to theirs;
that generations yet unborn
may teach them to their heirs.

4 Thus shall they learn in God alone
their hope securely stands,
that they may ne'er forget his works,
but practice his commands.
