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

1 In the dear Lord’s garden,
Planted here below,
Many tiny flowerets,
In sweet beauty grow.

Jesus calls the children,
Bids them come and stand
In His pleasant garden,
Watered by His hand.

2 Christ, the loving Gardener,
Tends these blossoms small;
Loves the little lilies
As the cedars tall. [Refrain]

3 Lord, Thy call we answer
Take us in Thy care;
Train us in Thy garden,
In Thy work to share. [Refrain]
