Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Jesus loves children, the bible says so;
He will be with them where ever they go,
Shield them from harm thro’ the darkness of night,
Guide them and help them all day to do right.

Shout the glad news to each one you meet;
Jesus loves even the waifs of the street.

2 “Suffer the children, to come unto me;”
These words He spoke beside blue Galilee;
Not the rich only His sweet message greets,
Jesus loves even the waifs of the street. [Chorus]

3 Ragged, and tattered, and hungry, the waif
May to the Savior repair and be safe;
He once was hungry and friendless, and poor,
That’s why He pities the waifs at the door. [Chorus]
