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.
1 The children of earth are the light of our eyes,
We cheer them with all that our love can devise;
We pray that in growing,
Their thoughts may be going
To the Father that dwells in the skies.
For Jesus we’re growing,
The seed we are sowing,
For Jesus who dwells in the skies.
2 The children of darkness may boast of their might,
But thanks be to God, we are children of light;
The prodigal craven,
May reach the fair haven,
If repentant he turns to the right. [Refrain]
3 Our Saviour in heaven delights not in scorn,
His features are gentle and bright as the morn;
Our life is His treasure,
Our love is His pleasure,
And He weeps for the child from Him torn. [Refrain]Source: Boundless Love: for Sunday Schools and Gospel Meetings #188
