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.

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.

His little ones

Representative Text

1. To the busy Saviour long ago,
Mothers brought their jewels rare;
While disciples would not have it so,
Jesus blessed them then and there.

Jesus finds for little ones a place,
Where they rest from all alarms;
Beams of pleasure shine upon his face,
As he takes them in his arms.

2. By the shores of lovely Galilee,
Some where have the Master tell
Who should greatest in his kingdom be
Who in honor should excel. [Chorus]

3. Jesus called a little child and said,
Ye must all converted be;
And as humbly as this child be led
If you would my kingdom see. [Chorus]

4. At the Father's blessed throne of grace,
Holy angels bright and fair,
Daily do appear before his face,
Guarding them with watchful care. [Chorus]
