Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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

Unless There's No-One Watching

Representative 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.
