Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 The birds are praises singing
In all the leafy trees;
The incense of the flowers
Is born on every breeze;
The winds that blow so gently
A summer carol sing;
Then join, O happy children,
In praises to your King!

Refrain:
Creation raises
Its song to God above;
Then children join your praises
To Him whose name is love!
To Him, to Him, to Him whose name is love!

2 The happy birds of summer
Are kept through storm and sun;
The Heav’nly Father knoweth
When each short life is done.
And He who keeps the sparrows
Has kept His children too;
Then sin, with hearts and voices,
To Him who cares for you! [Refrain]

3 The flowers in the meadow
That live but for a day,
Are dressed by their Creator
In raiment bright and gay.
And He who loves the lilies
Doth love His children too;
Then sin, with hearts and voices,
To Him who cares for you! [Refrain]
