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.

1 Here again our friends we meet,
Bringing flowers rich and sweet,
Laying them at Jesus’ feet,
On this children’s day.

This is happy children’s day,
Children’s day, children’s day;
Hear the brook and fountain say,
This is children’s day.

2 Gleaners all and glad are we,
Faithful toilers full of glee,
Bringing hearts and songs to Thee,
On this children’s day. [Refrain]

3 As these flowers of beauteous hue,
May our lives be pure and true,
Fragrant actions may we do,
From this children’s day. [Refrain]
