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 Happy little children,
Happy all day long,
Do you know the secret
Of our happy song?

L O V E, love,
L O V E, love
This is why we are so happy;
L O V E, love.

2 Jewels for the crowning
Of our blessed King;
Happy little children,
Joyously we sing. [Refrain]

3 Happy little children
On this Holy day;
Would you know the reason,
Listen what we say. [Refrain]

4 Love came down from heaven
Long, long, time ago;
Do you then need wonder
Why we love Him so? [Refrain]
