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 Hark, the birds and brooklets singing!
Hark, the breezes soft reply!
Children, join the song of nature;—
Singing praise to God on high.

Hark, the blossoms seem to whisper
“Think of all your Father’s love.”
Hark, the bird-notes seem to echo,
“Lift a song to God above.”

2 Bend and watch the dainty flowers,
Soft and low they seem to say;—
“God hath made us silent preachers,
Sing His praise on Children’s Day.” [Refrain]

3 List the music from the tree tops,
soft the leafy fingers play.
‘Tis the wind harp’s gentle music
Praising God on Children’s Day. [Refrain]

4 Children, heed these many voices,
Lift your hearts in earnest praise,
To the Lover of the children
Who with blessings crowns your days. [Refrain]
