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

116. The Children's Meeting

1 Oh, we love the children’s meeting,
Where we learn the golden rule;
Here we come with happy greeting
In our precious little school.

Refrain:
Oh, how sweet!
The Lord is here today;
And the angels o’er us hover,
As we children sing and pray.

2 Oh, it makes us feel so happy
That we have a meeting, too,
Where we sing our songs to Jesus,
Who has loved us children so. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, bless our little meeting,
Teach us how to love Thee more,
Help us sing and pray and worship,
And Thy holy name adore. [Refrain]

4 And our dear, beloved brethren,
Read the precious, holy word,
And instruct us little children
To be good and please the Lord. [Refrain]
