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 Of deeds like daisies lowly,
A chain of love we’ll make;
Each link a word of kindness,
For lonely hearts that ache
And with these gentle fetters,
We’ll bind them unto Him,
Whose hand can wipe the tear drops
From eyes with weeping dim.

Refrain:
Of deeds, like snowy daisies,
A chain of love we’ll make;
And clasp the golden fetters
‘Round lonely hearts that ache,
And clasp the golden fetters
‘Round lonely hearts that ache.

2 We’ll weary not in weaving,
And strong must be the chain;
If we should faint or falter,
Our work would be in vain.
And we must ask for wisdom,
And guidance from above,
That we may show His spirit
In all our works of love. [Refrain]

3 The chain must have no ending,—
But patiently each day,
We’ll try to help the erring
To find the better way.
May each true life of service
In all good works abound,
Until these golden fetters
Shall clasp the world around. [Refrain]
