Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Bring in the children, O bring them today;
Speak to them gently, and show them the way;
Careless they wander, and thoughtless they roam;
Bring in the children, for here is their home.

Refrain
Bring, O bring the children,
O bring them today,
O bring them today;
Bring, O bring the children,
O bring them in today.

2. Bring in the children, O seek them abroad,
Win them from evil, and train them for God;
Gladly our mission O let us fulfill,
Knowing that Jesus will be with us still. [Refrain]

3. Bring in the children, so friendless and poor;
Joy to their hearts will the Savior restore;
Bring in the children, compel them to come;
Jesus invites them, and yet there is room. [Refrain]
