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

The birds' nest

Full Text

1 High in the treetops' leavy bough
The birdies are building a nest;
'Twas God the Father taught them how
To build, ev'ry birdie, his best;
To build, ev'ry birdie, his best,
To build, ev'ry birdie, his best;
'Twas God the Father taught them how
To build, ev'ry birdie, his best.

2 This is the little birdies' nest
They built in the treetop so high,
And while they cuddle down to rest
The leaves sing their lullaby-by;
The leaves sing their lullaby-by.
The leaves sing their lullaby-by;
And while they cuddle down to rest
The leaves sing their lullaby-by.

3 This is the mother bird who brings
The wee little birdies their food;
This is the father bird who sings
And watches all day o'er his brood;
And watches all day o'er his brood,
And watches all day o'er his brood;
This is the father bird who sings
And watches all day o'er his brood.

4 These are the little birds we love,
Who live in the treetop so high,
And He who rules the world above
Looks down on each one from the sky;
Looks down on each one from the sky,
Looks down on each one from the sky;
And He who rules the world above
Looks down on each one from the sky.
