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

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.
