We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

When God sees the flowers need His tender care,
He sends little raindrops with a blessing there.

Busy little raindrops let us be today,
As we strive to scatter blessings all along the way;
Helpful little raindrops will we be today,
Doing work for Jesus in a raindrop’s way.

2 We are little raindrops, God has sent us here
From His fount of blessing, bringing hope and cheer. [Refrain]

3 Every drop reflecting God’s most tender love
Helps to light the pathway to the Home above. [Refrain]

4 Though we are but raindrops, we are glad to know
That we have a mission in this world below. [Refrain]
