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 Hymnary.org, 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 garden, in the garden of Jesus our Savior,
We are growing, we are growing for Jesus alone.

Refrain
Like the flow’rs of the morning His garden adorning,
We are growing for Jesus, His loved and His own.

2. Little children, little children are the flow’rs in His garden,
We must blossom, we must blossom, for Jesus alone. [Refrain]

3. Jesus loves us, Jesus loves us, the flow’rs of His garden;
He will keep us, He will keep us, nor leave us alone. [Refrain]

4. We must love Him, we must love Him, this Jesus our Savior,
We must trust Him, we must trust Him, in Jesus alone. [Refrain]
