Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 God cares for His children
Where’er they may be,
Upon the bleak mountain
Or on the deep sea;
In mansion or cottage
He keeps them in view;
Fear not, God is watching
With love over you.

2 The bird in the treetop
May rest in His care;
The waves are a cradle,
And Jesus is there;
The chorus may sleep ‘neath
The frost and the dew;
Fear not, God is watching
With love over you.

3 He ever is near you
Tho’ oft you may stray,
His loving eyes follow
You all on the way;
He loves you so dearly,
Be faithful and true;
Fear not, God is watching
With love over you.
