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 "Come unto Me!" still thro' the ages falling,
Like heav’nly voices musical and sweet,
The loving Savior tenderly is calling
The children round His feet.

Come unto Me, come unto Me,
Suffer the children to come unto Me.

2 "Forbid them not," but with a prayerful blessing,
Teach them to trust His never failing care;
And feel His dear hands tenderly caressing
Their fair heads bowed in prayer. [Refrain]

3 For such as they the Father’s home in glory
Waits with its joys across the cystal sea;
Then tell them oft the old yet sweet new story,
With patience, tenderly. [Refrain]
