Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 early morning,
With the sun's first rays,
All God's little children
Thank, and pray, and praise.

2 To Thee thanks I offer,
Jesus, Shepherd dear,
For Thy tender pasture
And Thy guiding care.

3 And I would implore Thee,
Be with me this day,
Lest I from Thee wander,
Into danger stray.

4 If Thou dwell within me,
Evil far must go,
And I shall be tasting
Bliss that angels know.

5 In the hush of evening,
With the sun's last rays
All God's little children
Thank, and pray, and praise.

6 Always in Thy keeping,
Jesus, Savior dear,
Whether waking, sleeping,
We Thy children are.
