Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

1 Do you know what makes us happy,
When so many hearts are sad?
We are little friends of Jesus,
That is why we are so glad.

We are little friends, we are loving friends,
We are happy, happy little friends of Jesus;
We are little friends, we are loving friends,
We are happy all day long.

2 Jesus loves the children dearly,—
In his Word he tells them so;
Once he took them up and blessed them,
Many, many years ago. [Refrain]

3 We are little lambs of Jesus;
He, our Shepherd kind and dear,
Speaks, and, though we do not see him,
In our hearts his voice we hear. [Refrain]

4 If we try our best to please him
He will take us by and by
Where our spirit eyes will know him,
Far beyond the starry sky. [Refrain]
