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.
Harry Plantinga

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]
