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.

18. Song of the Creche

Sing of a stable built on a hill,
animals waiting, quiet and still,
next to a manger fragrant with hay,
ready to welcome Jesus their way.

Sing Noel! Sing Noel!
Lift up your voice!
Come now to Bethlehem,
come and rejoice!

Sing of young Mary, weary and worn,
knowing that Jesus soon would be born,
seeking in Joseph’s tender embrace
strength to bring forth her child of God’s grace.

Sing of the shepherds watching their sheep
out on the hillside, rugged and steep,
listening to heaven’s glorious song,
trusting an angel never is wrong.

Sing of the wise men scanning the sky,
spying the star-sign shining on high,
starting their journey, led by that star,
bringing to Jesus gifts from afar.

Sing of the baby, sweet little boy,
laid in a manger, welcomed with joy.
Sing of the Savior he will become.
His name is Jesus, God’s promised one.
