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

164. The Little Lord Jesus

1 A baby once slept in a manger,
A mother sat close by His side;
This babe was the Little Lord Jesus
Who for our sins suffered and died.

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus,
Born this blessed morning,
Hail Him! hail Him!
On this Christmas day.

2 Wise men sought this little Lord Jesus
Who lived on the earth long ago,
They came with their beautiful treasures
To Bethlehem’s plain through the snow. [Refrain]

3 Now if we will seek this Lord Jesus
He’ll fill all our hearts with His love;
And gently His spirit will guide us
To beautiful mansions above. [Refrain]
