Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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.

1. Gifts we bring to our King,
Every heart an offering—
Loving deeds for Jesus’ sake
Are the best gifts we can make:
For our gifts the Lord hath need;
He will bless each loving deed,
He will bless each loving deed,
And the children’s off’ring heed.

2. Praise we bring to our King,
And of God’s great love-gift sing,
While the story we repeat
Of the Christmas Babe so sweet!
For our praise the Lord hath need;
When we love in truth and deed,
When we love in truth and deed
Children’s praises He will heed.

3. Gifts we bring to our King,
While the merry chime-bells ring,
Kind words from our lips shall fall,
Cheerful smiles we’ll give to all:
For our gifts the Lord hath need;
He will bless each kindly deed,
He will bless each kindly deed,
And the words of children heed.
