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,
Harry Plantinga

1 Lead them, my God, to Thee,
Lead them to thee,
These children dear of mine,
Thou gavest me;
Oh, by thy love divine,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them to thee.

2 When earth looks bright and fair,
Festive and gay,
Let no delusive snare,
Lure them away;
But from temptation’s pow’r,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them to thee.

3 E’en for such little ones,
Christ came a child,
And thro’ this world of sin,
Moved undefiled;
Oh, for his sake, I pray,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them to thee.

4 Yea, tho’ my faith be dim,
I would believe
That thou this precious gift
Wilt now receive;
Oh, take their young hearts now,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them to thee.
