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 “Suffer the little children,”
The loving Saviour said,
And placed His hands with gentle touch
Upon each childish head.
And still today
That tender call
“Bring all the children,
Bring them all.”

2 “Suffer the little children,”
The loving Saviour said,
“Forbid them not to come to me,
But smooth the way instead.”
In barren wild
Or sinful spot,
“Forbid them not,
Forbid them not.”

3 “Suffer the little children,”
The loving Saviour said,
“For with the bread of Heaven
These children must be fed.”
And still today
That tender call
“Bring all the children,
Bring them all.”
