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.
Harry Plantinga

I hear the children's voices

I hear the children's voices

Tune: NORWOOD (31326)
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I hear the children's voices
In tender strains uprise,
Their carols sweetly blending
With hymns beyond the skies.

2 Christ smiled on little children,
And drew them to His breast;
"Of such is Heaven's kingdom,"
Of love, and joy, and rest.

3 They trust, and fear no evil,
Confiding, gentle, kind;
In simple faith, as children,
We happiness may find.

4 They sing their joyous carols,
With lips and hearts as free
As winds, and waves, and sunshine,
Or birds upon the tree.

5 They love the fields and flowers,
The fragrance, and the light;
And all this world of ours
For them is ever bright.

6 They love the name of Jesus,
They trust His tender care,
And all they know of Heaven,
Is - Christ Himself is there.
