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 We are little children,
Very young indeed,
But the Saviour's promise,
Each of us may plead.

Refrain:
If we seek Him early,
If we come today,
We can be his little friends;
He has said we may.

2 Little friends of Jesus,
What a happy tho't!
What a precious promise,
In the Bible taught. [Refrain]

3 Little friends of Jesus,
Walking by His side,
With His arm around us,
Every step to guide. [Refrain]

4 We must love Him dearly,
With a constant love,
Then we'll go and see Him,
In our homes above. [Refrain]
