We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

The little ones' offering

Representative Text

1. Little hands that never yet have learned to sin,
Little feet that enter ev'ry race to win,
Little hearts with only room for Christ within,
These the Master loves to find.

We will come and bow before the Saviour
Ere he need repeat his call,
Laying on the altar of salvation
Life and love and all.

2. Little eyes that look above to find the light,
Little ears that listen only to the right,
Little lips that love to speak of Jesus' might,
These the Master loves to find. [Chorus]
