We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Representative Text

1 Jesus, when He left the sky,
And for sinners came to die,
In His mercy passed not by
Little ones like me.

Refrain 1:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
In His mercy passed not by
Little ones like me.

2 Mothers then the Savior sought
In the places where He taught,
And to Him their children brought—
Little ones like me.

Refrain 2:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
And to Him their children brought—
Little ones like me.

3 Did the Savior say them nay?
No! He kindly bade them stay,
Suffered none to turn away
Little ones like me.

Refrain 3:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
Suffered none to turn away
Little ones like me.

4 ’Twas for them His life He gave,
To redeem them from the grave;
Jesus now will gladly save
Little ones like me.

Refrain 4:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
Jesus now will gladly save
Little ones like me.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
