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 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]
