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 evangels for Thee, dear Savior,
Gladly we offer life’s morning hours,
Telling to others Thy grace and mercy,
Scatt’ring for Thee love’s sweet fragrant flow’rs.

Little evangels for Thee today,
Doing for others the good we may;
Guide Thou our steps in Thine own safe pathway,
Bless Thou our service, dear Lord, we pray!

2 Little evangels for Thee, dear Savior,
Strewing glad blessings along our way,
Shining for Thee in the shady places,
Showing Thy goodness to us each day. [Chorus]

3 Little evangels for Thee, dear Savior,
Faithful and loyal through all our days,
Under Thy standard we march together,
Joyfully singing a song of praise. [Chorus]
