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.

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.
