Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1034. Little Ones Like Me

1 Jesus, when He left the sky,
And for sinners came to die,
In His mercy passed not by
Little ones like me.

Refrain 1:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
In His mercy passed not by
Little ones like me.

2 Mothers then the Savior sought
In the places where He taught,
And to Him their children brought—
Little ones like me.

Refrain 2:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
And to Him their children brought—
Little ones like me.

3 Did the Savior say them nay?
No! He kindly bade them stay,
Suffered none to turn away
Little ones like me.

Refrain 3:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
Suffered none to turn away
Little ones like me.

4 ’Twas for them His life He gave,
To redeem them from the grave;
Jesus now will gladly save
Little ones like me.

Refrain 4:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
Jesus now will gladly save
Little ones like me.
