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

The Children's Mission

Dear friends, we have a mission, too

Tune: [Dear friends, we have a mission, too]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Dear friends, we have a mission, too,
A place to work as well as you;
Our little feet can learn to tread,
Wherever by the Savior led.

Our hands can work,
Our tongues can sing,
Our hearts can love the children's King.

2 Our eyes that sparkle with delight,
Can make sad homes with pleasure bright;
Now let us clasp our hands to pray,
Dear Savior, hear the words we say.

Lord, bless the little children,
Wherever they may be,
Far out on the silent prairie,
Down by the sounding sea.
Like flowers in the crowded city,
Like birds in the forest free;
Lord, bless the little children,
Wherever they may be.

Amen, Amen.
