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

One of these little ones

Representative Text

1. Dear little pilgrim, pressing on
To Canaan's happy land
O, can you hear your Saviour's voice,
And follow his command?
Yes, I will go where Jesus went,
Not fearing Jordan's wave;
The Well beloved the Father sent
I know is strong to save.

2. My Saviour calls me to his side
Lord, I will follow thee!
I know thine angels still abide
With little ones like me.
With joy I'll go where he shall lead,
My Guide he'll surely be
Who gave me life and friends and home,
And gave himself to me.

3. I walk the path his footsteps trod,
I gaze on hill and vale
His presence blessed, I view the sea
Where Jesus calmed the gale;
I shall be safe, kept by his power
Who rules the angry wave;
Tho' sorrows press and dangers lower
He ever lives to save!

4. And now, by faith, in Jordan's flood
Obeying his command,
Saved by the water and the blood
His child, redeemed, I stand!
He careth for his little ones,
He bids them "Come to Me.
Of such as these, shall, in that day
My heavenly kingdom be!"
