Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

250. We Would See Jesus; Lo! His Star is Shining

1 We would see Jesus; lo! his star is shining,
above the stable while the angels sing;
in manger humble on the hay reclining,
haste, let us lay our gifts before the King.

2 We would see Jesus; Mary's son most holy,
Light of the village life from day to day;
shines revealed through ev'ry task most lowly,
the Christ of God, the Life, the Truth, the Way.

3 We would see Jesus; on the mountain teaching,
with all the list'ning people gathered round;
while birds and flow'rs and sky above are preaching
the blessedness which simple trust has found.

4 We would see Jesus; in his work of healing,
that joyful evening when the sun was set;
divine and human, in his deep revealing
of God made flesh, in loving service meet.

5 We would see Jesus; in the early morning,
still, as of old he calleth, "Follow me";
let us arise, all meaner service scorning;
Lord, we are thine; we give ourselves to thee.
