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

In the woods the young boy

Representative Text

1 In the woods the young boy knelt;
He went alone to pray.
He asked God which church was right,
Which one taught Jesus' way.

2 In the woods the oung boy saw
God and the Christ appear,
"this in my beloved Son,
Hear him"—the words were clear.

3 In the woods the young boy vowed
That he would serve the Lord.
God used him and now we have
The church of Christ restored.

4 In the wood the young boy prayed.
Like him in faith we pray,
"We would serve thee all our lives,
O Lead us, Lord, each day."
