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

Representative Text

1 A little child can brightly shine,
For Christ, the children’s Friend;
And learn while young, by faith divine,
On Jesus to depend.

Dear children, think of Jesus’ love,
Come, give your hearts to Him;
Walk in the path that leads above,
Let not your light grow dim.

2 A little child can do some deed,
Of kindness every day;
And thus be sowing precious seed,
To bloom beside the way. [Refrain]

3 A little child, our Saviour came,
And lived upon the earth;
To save us from our sin and shame,
And teach the heav’nly birth. [Refrain]

4 A little child – the Bible reads,
“Is by his doings known;”
Each little life the Saviour needs,
O, come and be His own. [Refrain]
