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, 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

Unless There's No-One Watching

Full Text

1 I use a spoon to eat my soup unless there's no one watching
I mind my bus'ness and never snoop unless there's no one watching
I wash my hands so carefully unless there's no one watching
I bow my head so piously unless there's no one watching

2 I only take one piece of pie unless there's no one watching
I try to smile and never cry unless there's no one watching
But if there's comfort I could bring to ease somebody's suff'ring
I know that I will do the right thing, 'cuz I'll be the one who's watching.
