We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 “He called a little child,”—
The Lord Who loves us so,—
Called children to His side,
To bless them, long ago.

“He called a little child,”—
He calleth you and me;
Lord, keep us at Thy side,
That we may faithful be.

2 “He called a little child,”—
He loves the children still,—
Our Saviour meek and mild!
O, let us do His will. [Refrain]

3 In night-time and in day,
Our little life He sees;
O, let us ever pray,
That we our Lord may please. [Refrain]
