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

Representative Text

1 Jesus gave our hands to us,
As a gift of love;
And he watches what they do,
From his home above.

Busy hands, useful hands,
Hands that help along!
Glad and gay, they merrily clap away
To our happy song.

2 In his service here below
We would use them right,
Keeping them from evil free,
Spotless, pure and white. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, take our hands today,
And their service bless;
So our lives like thine shall pass
In sweet usefulness. [Refrain]
