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.

Representative Text

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.

Refrain:
We’re growing,
We’re growing,
For Jesus we’re growing,
The seed we are sowing,
We’re growing,
We’re growing,
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]
