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

Representative Text

1 Dinna forget the old folks,
They’ve aye been kind to you;
They’ve shared your joys and sorrows
With loyal love and true;
When cares on life’s rough pathway
Have caused you tears and pain,
They’ve always held you closer
To their dear hearts again.

Dinna forget the old folks,
Be gentle, good, and true,
And kind unto the old folks,
For they’ve been kind to you.

2 Dinna forget the old folks,
But with affection’s ways,
Bring back to them the sunshine
And smiles of other days;
The joy of your affection
Will help to smooth away
The furrows on their foreheads,
And light their fading day. [Refrain]

3 Dinna forget the old folks,
Their wintry locks revere,
And make them glad and happy
While yet they linger here;
Some day they’ll have to leave you,
Their sun is nearly set,
Dinna forget the old folks,
But make them happy yet. [Refrain]
