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

517. Two Little Hands Are Sweetly Folded

1 Two little hands are sweetly folded
Upon a silent breast:
The little heart within has numbered
Its throbs and gone to rest.

Refrain:
Resting, resting,
Oh, how sweet!
Resting, resting,
Sweetly resting.

2 Two little eyes are closed forever
To earth’s unholy sight,
Two little cherub wings now hover
In heaven’s golden light. [Refrain]

3 Two little feet have ceased to travel
Upon the shores of time;
A little gem released from trouble
Has gone above to shine. [Refrain]

4 Oh, what a comfort, dear Redeemer,
Thy grace and love hath giv’n,
That when life’s winter day is ended,
We’ll meet our child in heav’n. [Refrain]
