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

Blessed Jesus, wilt thou hear us

Blessed Jesus, wilt thou hear us

Author: J. M. Hunt
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Blessed Jesus, wilt Thou hear us,
Little children though we be?
Saviour, wilt Thou now be near us,
While we try to sing to Thee?
Thou hast bid us not to fear;--
"Bring the little children near."

2 We have often heard the story
Of Thy great and wondrous love;
How Thou left the world of glory,
And Thy Father's house above,
Here to suffer and to die
For such little ones as I.

3 O how very meek and lowly
Little children then should be,
When the Son of God most holy
Came a little child like me; -
Thou didst suffer grief and shame
Like a meek and quiet lamb.

4 May our sins be all forgiven,
Take our naughty hearts away;
Bring us all at last to heaven,
Ever there with Thee to stay;
There may we, Thy children, raise
Hymns of joy and perfect praise.
