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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Hear the blessed Savior saying,
“Let the children come to Me!”
Joyfully He will receive them,
And their Friend forever be.

Refrain:
“Let them come unto Me,”
Hear the blessed Savior say;
Sweet the call unto all,
May we heed it and obey.

2 Yes, the gracious invitation’s
To the young as well as old;
And the lambs are ever welcome
To the loving Shepherd’s fold. [Refrain]

3 Let us try to be like Jesus,
Love and serve Him every day;
Then we’ll have a home in heaven
When from earth we pass away. Refrain]
