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 Let the children come to me,
Now, methinks, I hear Him say;
In my kingdom they will be;
Purchased by my blood are they.

Refrain:
Let them come, let them come;
In my bright and heav’nly home
There is welcome there is room;
Let them come, let them come.

2 Let the children come to me:
This He said in days of old;
With their hearts from sin made free,
Let them come into my fold. [Refrain]

3 Let the children come and sing;
Hinder not their joyful songs;
Let them now their tribute bring,
For to me their praise belongs. [Refrain]
