Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

Over trackless regions,
From the Morning land,
Bearing costly treasures,
Came a seeking band--
Wise men with devotion,
From the Morning land.

Wheresoe'er the star led,
In the ebon sky,
Thither pressed those wise men,
With uplifted eye,
Following the star light
In the ebon sky.

They would find the young King
Whom the star foretold;
They would render homage,
And their gifts unfold,
Bowing low before Him,
Whom the star foretold.

67
Jesu, Son of David,
God's Incarnate Word,
Endless, unbegotten,
By the wise adored--
We would bow before Thee,
God's Incarnate Word.

Not without an offering
Would we seek our King;
But with true devotion
What is noblest, bring--
With a gift so precious,
Would we seek our King.

Jesu, King Eternal,
Son of God, Divine,
Man, yet still remaining
Of the Godbead Trine--
See, our hearts we give Thee,
Son of God, Divine.
