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

Samuel

Representative Text

1 Asked of God, and lent unto him,
See the sweet, obedient child
Growing up to faithful boyhood,
Loving, gentle, pure and mild.
Like him may we be;
Teach us, Lord, to follow thee;
Like him may we be;
Teach us, Lord, to follow thee.

2 Diligent in loving service,
Prayerful judge, and prophet, too,
Long the man of God was honored,
Teaching Israel what to do.
Like him may we seek
Words of truth and love to speak;
Like him may we seek
Words of truth and love to speak.

3 As a wise and faithful ruler,
As a true and loyal man,
He fulfilled his heav'nly mission,
Which in childhood's days began.
Like him may we give
All to God while we shall live;
Like him may we give
All to God while we shall live.
