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 There is a gentle Gard'ner,
Who owns a garden fair,
Where countless blooming flowers
Enjoy His tender care,
Where countless blooming flowers
Enjoy His tender care.

2 He grants them radiant sunshine
And soft, refreshing rain;
Thus nurtured, they must flourish
And sweetest fragrance gain,
Thus nurtured, they must flourish
And sweetest fragrance gain.

3 They fondly love the Gard'ner,
And all to Him incline,
While with their clinging tendrils
They seek Him to entwine,
While with their clinging tendrils
They seek Him to entwine.

4 And when their day is ended,
He takes them to His breast,
And heavenward He bears them
To regions ever blest,
And heavenward He bears them
To regions ever blest.

5 There shall those flowers blossom
In beauty evermore,
Nor cold nor frost shall blight them
On that celestial shore.

6 Thou Gard'ner true and gentle,
Care for us every day,
That we in yonder garden
May thrive and bloom for aye.
