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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 'Tis children's day; from heart to heart,
Let joy, let joy responsive ring;
While here we come with grateful love
To praise the children's King.
While summer flow'rs their incense breathe,
And birds with rapture sing,
We tune our souls to higher strains,
And praise the children's King.

Hosanna! Hosanna!
Still let the temple chorus ring;
Hosanna to Jesus,
He is the children's King.

2 For smiling hills where stately trees
Their shade, their cooling shade expand;
For brooks that course through meadows green
And glide on ev'ry hand;
For founts of knowledge purer far
Than rill or mountain spring;
For wisdom's light our steps to guide,
We praise the children's King. [Chorus]
