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,

1. When little children do the wrong,
And do not wish the Lord’s to be—
Does He behold their every deed?
Can Jesus see? Can Jesus see?

2. When little children falsely speak,
Or take in vain that name so dear,
Though all unheard, their words may seem,
Can Jesus hear? Can Jesus hear?

3. When little children, in their hearts,
Give evil thoughts a chance to grow,
Ere yet their bitter fruits they bear,
Can Jesus know? Can Jesus know?

4. Yes, Jesus sees our every deed,
And hears each word our lips let fall;
He knows our every secret thought,
And He by these will judge us all.
