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.

Representative Text

1 Blessèd Savior, Thou didst suffer
Little ones to come to Thee.
Lo! we offer now our tribute,
Let our praise accepted be;
’Mid the hallelujahs ringing,
’Mid the burst of angel song,
Stoop to hear our childish singing,
Listen to an infant throng.

2 For a cry of deepest sorrow
Comes across the waters blue:
Ye who know salvation’s story,
Haste to help and save us, too;
Shed, oh, shed the Gospel glory
O’er the darkness of our night,
Till the gloomy shadows vanish
In its full and blessèd light.

3 For the poor benighted millions
We can give and work and pray,
And our gifts and prayers united,
Sure will speed that happy day,
When, no more to idols bowing,
All shall own our Jesus king,
And ten thousand voices ringing
Shall His praise victorious sing.
