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.

Dear children, evermore

Representative Text

1 Dear children, evermore
In God your Lord rejoice;
And render praises meet,
With heart, and soul, and voice.

2 In all things sober be,
For Jesus is at hand;
So live that when He comes
Accepted ye may stand.

3 Cast ye aside all care,
And with glad heart alway,
Make known your every want;
God loves to hear you pray.

4 With every meek request
Let praises glad ascend,
For praise like incense sweet
Should with petition blend.

5 A glad and thankful heart
Wins blessings from the skies,
And is a sacrifice
Most precious in God's eyes.

6 Then in the Lord alway,
O children dear, rejoice;
And glorify His Name,
With heart, and soul, and voice.
