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

33. Jesus Is Calling the Children

1 Jesus is calling the children,
Calling, yes, calling today;
Oh, will you walk in His footsteps—
Walk in the beautiful way?

Refrain:
Beautiful way, beautiful way,
Walk in the beautiful way.

2 Jesus is calling the children,
Those who are going astray;
He wants to lead you to heaven,
Along the beautiful way. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is calling the children,
Come to Him now while you may;
He’ll fill your heart with His gladness,
Walk in the beautiful way. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is calling the children,
Will you His sweet voice obey?
Come, let Him lead you to heaven,
Along the beautiful way. [Refrain]
