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.

1 The sweetest name in Heav’n above,
Children sing, children sing;
Our blessed Saviour crown’d with love,
Children sing today;
The Friend whose ever watchful care
Will guard our feet from every snare,
Who loves to hear our earnest prayer,
Children sing today.

2 Salvation thro’ His holy name,
Children sing, children sing;
His mercy to the world proclaim,
Children sing today;
By Him redeemed from death and sin,
By Him redeemed and cleansed within,
Eternal life we all may win,
Children sing today.

3 With those whose trials now are o’er,
Children sing, children sing;
With saints on yonder radiant shore,
Children sing today;
With martyrs in the heavenly land,
That round His throne in glory stand,
With all the shining angel band,
Children sing today.
