Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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

1 The Babe in Bethl'em’s manger laid,
In humble form so low,
By wond’ring angels is surveyed
Through all His scenes of woe.

Refrain:
Noël, Noël,
Now sing a Savior’s birth,
All hail His coming down to earth,
Who raises us to heav’n.

2 A Savior, sinners all around!
Sing, shout the wondrous word;
Let every bosom hail the sound,
A Savior! Christ the Lord. [Refrain]

3 For, not to sit on David’s throne
With worldly pomp and joy,
He came for sinners to atone,
And Satan to destroy. [Refrain]

4 Well may we sing the Savior’s birth,
Who need the grace so given,
And hail His coming down to earth,
Who raises us to heaven. [Refrain]
