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, 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

Be Careful

Full Text

1 Little feet, be very careful where you go,
As in life you daily travel to and fro;
Never for a moment stray
From the straight and holy way;
Oh, be careful, be careful, little feet.

2 Little hands, be very careful what you do,
Wrong or thoughtless actions you will surely rue;
Into mischief never go,
For ’tis very wrong, you know;
Oh, be careful, be careful, little hands.

3 Little ears, be very careful what you hear,
When the tempter whispers to you, danger’s near;
Though he promise everything,
Every promise is a sting!
Oh, be careful, be careful, little ears.

4 Little hearts, be very careful to be true,
Love the Lord and He will surely care for you;
Jesus will not enter in
Where there is the least of sin;
Oh, be careful, be careful, little hearts.
