Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1 I am Jesus little lamb,
Happy all day long I am;
He will keep me safe from harm,
For I’m his lamb.

I am Jesus little lamb,
Happy all day long I am;
He will keep me safe I know,
For I’m his lamb.

2 By his staff I’m led along,
Guarded by his arm so strong,
I’m so happy all day long,
For I’m his lamb. [Refrain]

3 Then I never will repine,
While around his glories shine;
I am his and he is mine,
Oh, I’m his lamb. [Refrain]
