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 My name, you see, is Kitty,
I've just come from the city
To sing this little ditty,
And pleas you, one and all.
I bro't along my basket,
My little jeweled casket;
My business- do not ask it,
For I'm going to explain.

Chorus:
Apples, for a penny,
Here's your fine strawberries,
Peaches, plums and cherries,
You may taste before you buy;
Apples, for a penny,
Here's your fine strawberries,
Peaches, plums and cherries,
You may taste before you buy.

2 Only just a penny,
You know you have so many;
I really haven't any,
As you can plainly see.
My heart is nearly breaking,
For nothing I am making;
I feel like one forsaken,
So I'll bid you all adieu. [Chorus]
