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 praise Thy name, O Father,
Creator, Lord, and friend;
Thy mighty hand that made us,
Will keep and will defend.

Refrain:
O God, our heav’nly Father,
Thy children look to Thee;
Thy hand is strong and tender,
Thy love is full and free.

2 No tiny bird or blossom
Can live without Thy care;
Thy little ones are dearer,
And Thou wilt hear their prayer. [Refrain]

3 Thy loving heart will pity,
Thy wondrous grace will save,
Because Thy son, our Savior,
His life for sinners gave. [Refrain]

4 Thou knowest how to give us
The very things we need;
Thy trusting little children
Are safe, and blest, indeed. [Refrain]
