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, 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

Full Text

1 We are a little gleaning band,
We cannot bind the sheaves,
But we can follow him who reaps,
And gather what he leaves,
We are not strong, but Jesus loves
The weakest of the fold,
And in our feeble efforts, prove
His tenderness untold.

We are a little gleaning band,
We cannot bind the sheaves,
But we can follow him who reaps
And gather what he leaves.

2 We are not rich, but we can give,
As we are passing on
A cup of water in his name,
To some poor fainting one,
We are not wise, but Christ, our Lord,
Revealed to babes his will,
And we are sure from his dear word,
He saves his children still. [Refrain]

3 We know that with our gathered grain
Briars and leaves are seen;
Yet since we tried, He smiles the same,
And takes our offering,
Dear children still, hosannas sing
As Christ doth conquering come
Casting your treasures as he brings
The heathen nations home. [Refrain]
