Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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,
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,
That we in yonder garden
May thrive and bloom for aye.
