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 something on earth for the children to do,
For the child that is striving to be
Like the One who once murmured in accents of love,
Let the little ones come unto Me.

Refrain:
There is something to do, there is something to do,
There is something for children to do;
On the beautiful earth where the Savior had birth,
There is something for children to do.

2 There are sweet winning words to the weary and sad,
By their glad loving lips to be said;
There are hearts that are waiting by some little hand,
Unto Jesus the Lord to be led. [Refrain]
