Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

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

33. A Child is Born, the Birth Proclaim

A child is born,--the birth proclaim,
A son is given,--declare his name;
Messiah, from the Fall foretold,
The Deity in human mould;
--That mould from which, God's image lost
In Eden at so dire a cost,
The new creation shall restore,
And guilt efface its lines no more.

Hail! to His rising from afar,
He is the bright and morning star;
His healing beams, ye nations, bless,
He is the Sun of Righteousness
To save His people from their sins,
Jesus His suffering life begins;
Ere long as Christ our sacrifice,
The Holy and the Just One dies.

Again His glorious name record,
As David's Son and David's Lord;
He mounts the mediatorial throne,
To claim earth's kingdoms for his own:
Him every eye again shall see
Descend in power and majesty,
His ransom'd in the clouds to meet,
And put all foes beneath his feet.
