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

Representative Text

1 I washed my hands this morning,
O very clean and white,
And lent them both to Jesus,
To work for Him till night.

Chorus:
Little feet be careful
Where you take me to,
Anything for Jesus,
Only let me do.

2 I told my ears to listen
Quite closely all day thro',
For any act of kindness
Such little hands can do. [Chorus]

3 My eyes are set to watch them
About their work or play,
To keep them out of mischief
For Jesus' sake all day. [Chorus]
