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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Jesus Loves the Little Children

Representative Text

1 Jesus calls the children dear,
"Come to me, and never fear,
For I love the little children of the world;
I will take you by the hand,
Lead you to the better land,
For I love the little children of the world."

Refrain:
Jesus loves the little children,
all the children of the world,
All the children of the earth,
they are precious from their birth,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

2 Jesus is the Shepherd true,
And He'll always stand by you,
For He loves the little children of the world;
He's a Savior great and strong,
And He'll shield you from the wrong,
For He loves the little children of the world. [Refrain]

3 I am coming, Lord, to Thee,
And Thy soldier I will be,
For He loves the little children of the world;
And His cross I'll always bear,
And for Him I'll do and dare,
For He loves the little children of the world. [Refrain]
