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 When little sparrows, flitting by,
Are known to Him who dwells on high,
And noted when they perish;
How great a love do we behold,
Of watchful shepherd to his fold,—
A love to laud and cherish,
A love to laud and cherish.

A gentle shepherd is the Lord,
A mighty sceptre is His word,
His loving eye watch o’er us,
And guide the way before us.

2 When million heads of myriad hairs,
Are not beneath the heav’nly cares,
And ev’ry hair is number’d;
How great a care must God above
Bestow upon His child of love,—
Upon the soul encumbered,
Upon the soul encumbered. [Refrain]

3 A little child, tho’ dead from pain,
Was brought to life and health again,
Thro’ a father’s mere believing;
How much the more in Heaven high,
Will Jesus hear our pleading cry,
And spare the heart from grieving,
And spare the heart from grieving. [Refrain]
