Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Jesus said of little children,
"Suffer them to come to Me,
For to such My heavenly kingdom
Shall a home of welcome be."
I love Him, He loves me,
And His child I want to be,
For He said "the little children,"
And I know that He means me.

2 When I try to be like Jesus—
Patient, gentle, meek and mild,
Then it is He smiles and loves me,
Then He owns me as His child.
I love Him, He loves me,
And His child I’ll try to be,
For He said "the little children,"
And I know that He means me.

3 Every day, as I grow older,
More I’ll try to do His will,
Growing wiser, stronger, better,
Every duty to fulfill.
I’ll love Him, He’ll love me,
His disciple I will be,
For He said "the little children,"
And I know that He means me.
