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 Lord, teach a little child to pray,
To plead for mercy in thy name;
O turn me not in grief away,
When I thy precious promise claim.

Refrain:
Whene’er I turn my eyes to thee,
Regard my pray’r and pity me.

2 When suff’rers thronged thee long ago,
And thou such wondrous work didst do;
Relief was found in every woe,
And children were made welcome too. [Refrain]

3 Thy hands once held in fond caress
The little children on thy knee,
And to thy bosom thou didst press
The weak and helpless ones like me. [Refrain]
