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,

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

Refrain:
It was Jesus! It was Jesus!
He was but a little child,
But the light of heav’n was shining
In His face so pure and mild.

2 It was Jesus who was teaching
And they listened to His word,
As He told them of His mission
From the great and mighty Lord. [Refrain]

3 With the teachers there they found Him,
Tho’ a lowly, learning youth,
But His answers as He told them
Were complete with Bible truth. [Refrain]

4 “Let us ever then be loyal
To our God, and church, and home,”
Ever faithful, ever trusting,
“Never minding what may come.” [Refrain]
