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

704. I Know Not How that Bethl'hem's Babe

1 I know not how that Bethl'hem's babe
could in the Godhead be;
I only know the manger child
has brought God's life to me.

2 I know not how that Calvary's cross
a world from sin could free;
I only know its matchless love
has brought God's love to me.

3 I know not how that Joseph's tomb
could solve death's mystery;
I only know a living Christ,
our immortality.
