Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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.

1 We’ve been singing, we’ve been singing,
In our Sabbath home today,
How our Savior like a shepherd
Leads us in the heavenly way.

O ’tis sweet to follow Jesus,
Sweet His little ones to be;
He is calling us so gently,
Children, give your hearts to Me.

2 We’ve been singing of His goodness,
How He loves us all the while;
When we try our best to please Him,
He rewards us with His smile. [Refrain]

3 We’ve been singing of His mercy
That will save us, every one,
If we come to God the Father
Thro’ our Savior, Christ the Son. [Refrain]

4 Now our happy song is over,
Once again we meet to part;
But we pray that God will bless us,
And abide in very heart. [Refrain]
