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

11222. Following The Star

1 Star in beauty beaming,
On the shadowed plain,
O’er the valleys gleaming,
Pour thy golden rain.
Shine in royal splendor,
Pilgrims hither bring.
Shed thy radiance tender,
On the newborn King.

Refrain:
Following the star,
Following the star,
Joyfully we journey,
Pilgrims from afar.
Led by light celestial,
’Neath the starry skies,
March along with joyful song,
To where Messiah lies.

2 Star of light supernal,
Lead along the way,
For the King eternal
Comes to earth today.
Deserts may be dreary,
Yet we joyful sing;
Can our feet be weary,
Hastening to our king? [Refrain]

3 Star of fadeless glory,
By thy wondrous rays
Earth shall know the story,
Her Redeemer praise.
Thro’ the dark and danger,
Faith our feet shall wing,
Till we reach the manger,
Till we see our king. [Refrain]
