We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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]
