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.

Representative Text

1 Jesus calls you to His kingdom;
Hear ye not His gracious voice?
Come ye all, and make His service
Now in early life your choice!

Come to Jesus! Come to Jesus!
He is calling, calling you!
In the early years of childhood
Even you have work to do!

2 When the tender buds of springtime
Burst into the flow’rs of June,
When the birds make vale and forest
With their songs of joy attune. [Refrain]

3 While the grace of life is o’er you
Like a mantle pure and fair,
While its innocence and beauty
Shut away a world of care. [Refrain]

4 To His kingdom, high and holy,
To His Church divine and true,
He is calling all the children,
He is calling even you. [Refrain]
