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.

Representative Text

1 Little children, seek the Savior
In the sunny days of youth;
Seek to know Him, learn to love Him;
Study now the Gospel truth.

Soon the storms of life may gather,
Soon shall wintry age come on;
Oh, seek refuge in the Savior,
He will safely guide you home.

2 Still the sky is clear above you,
Brightly shines the morning sun;
Do not linger by the wayside,
For life’s course is quickly run. [Refrain]

3 Consecrate yourselves to Jesus,
For He shed His blood for you;
Ever love Him, ever serve Him,
Daily He’ll your strength renew. [Refrain]

4 Many children now are singing
Round the throne of God above;
For they sought the Savior early,
And they learned the truth to love. [Refrain]
