We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Let the Little One Sleep

Representative Text

1 That little form before us
In death’s embrace,
Sweet angel face,
Has left a vacant place.

Let the little one sleep,
Let the little one sleep,
It is free from this world of care;
The Master has come,
And called it home,
It is resting over there.

2 Our darling child is sleeping,
It’s left this shore,
Its suff’ring days are o’er. [Refrain]

3 Our little one is living
Among the blest
In sweeter rest;
Our Father knoweth best. [Refrain]

4 Our child has gone to glory;
Let us prepare
To meet it there,
Eternal bliss to share. [Refrain]
