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.

Representative Text

1 The Saviour loved the children
Within the long ago;
He gave to them His blessing,
He sought each one to know.

Refrain:
O let us ever serve Him
Who is the children’s Friend,
For He will ever guide us
And keep us till the end.

2 The Saviour loves the children
As in the days of old;
His arms of love and mercy
About us He will fold! [Refrain]

3 With thoughts and words of kindness,
With shining deeds of love,
May we with gladness ever
Our love for Jesus prove! [Refrain]
