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

Representative Text

1 Little voices, happy voices,
Sing of Jesus and his love,
While the angels bending o’er us
Whisper softly from above,—

Oh, believe him, Oh, receive him,
Your Redeemer kind and true!
How he loves you! yes, he loves you
More than all your friends can do.

2 Little voices, happy voices,
While we praise him day by day,
Lo! the angels hove round us;
In our hearts we hear them say,— [Refrain]

3 Little voices, happy voices,
While we breathe his name so dear,
From the Bible, holy Bible,
Still the gentle words we hear,—
Little voices, happy voices, [Refrain]

4 Little voices, happy voices,
With our teachers while we sing;
They are telling, sweetly telling,
Of the Lord, our Saviour-King. [Refrain]
