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.

1 Little birds their Maker praise,
Why not I? Why not I?
Songs of gratitude they raise,
Why not I? Why not I?

Refrain:
He who notes the sparrow’s fall,
Is my Lord, my life, my all;
’Twas for me He came to die,
Who should praise Him if not I?

2 Little birds are free from care,
Why not I? Why not I?
Happy all the day they are,
Why not I? Why not I? [Refrain]

3 Little birds are free from sin,
Why not I? Why not I?
Pure and innocent within,
Why not I? Why not I? [Refrain]
