We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

In the temple, in the temple

Representative Text

1 Long ago within the temple
Stood a little boy one day,
And the doctors wondered greatly
At the words they heard Him say.

It was Jesus Christ, our Saviour!
He was but a little child,
But the light of Heaven was shining
In His face so pure and mild.

2 With the teachers there they found Him,
Though a lowly, learning youth,
But His answers as He told them
Were complete with heavenly truth. [Refrain]

4 Let us ever then be eager
To sit down at Jesus' feet,
To be learning from our Saviour,
And His lessons to repeat. [Refrain]
