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.
Harry Plantinga

241. There's a Friend for little children

1 There’s a Friend for little children,
Above the bright blue sky,
A Friend who never changes,
Whose love will never die.
Unlike our friends by nature,
Who change with changing years,
This Friend is always worthy
The precious name He bears;
This Friend is always worthy
The precious name He bears.

2 There’s a rest for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
Who love the blesséd Savior,
And to the Father cry.
A rest from every trouble,
From sin and danger free;
There every little pilgrim
Shall rest eternally,
There every little pilgrim
Shall rest eternally.

3 There’s a home for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
Where Jesus reigns in glory,
A home of peace and joy;
No home on earth is like it,
Nor can with it compare;
For every one is happy,
Nor could be happier there,
For every one is happy,
Nor could be happier there.

4 There are crowns for little children,
Above the bright blue sky,
And all who look to Jesus
Shall wear them by and by;
Yea, crowns of brightest glory
Which He shall sure bestow
On all who loved the Savior
And walked with Him below,
On all who loved the Savior
And walked with Him below.

5 There are songs for little children,
Above the bright blue sky,
And harps of sweetest music,
And hymns of victory:
And all above is pleasure,
And found in Christ alone;
Lord, grant Thy little children,
To know Thee as their own,
Lord, grant Thy little children,
To know Thee as their own.
