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 Listen to the voice of Jesus–
O so sweet!–
As the little children gather
Round His feet:
Young ones to His knees are climbing,
There to rest;
Older ones stand round Him waiting
To be blessed.

2 While the mothers who had brought them
Heard men say,–
“’Tis no place for little children:
Go away!”
They were sorry: but their sorrow
Soon was gone;
For He raised His hands, and blessed them
Ev’ry one.

3 And He said to His disciples,–
These are mine;
In the Kingdom of my Father
They shall shine:
Send them not away, but rather
Bring them near;
Even little ones may love their
Saviour dear.

4 Still He loves the little children,
You and me;
And He wants us all to love Him
Faithfully:
Let us, then, with hearts and voices
Gladly say,–
I am Thine, O blessed Jesus,
Thine for aye!
