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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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]
