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

89. A Babe is born in Bethlehem

1 A Babe is born in Bethlehem;
in Bethlehem;
Therefore rejoice, Jerusalem,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

2 He doth within a manger lie,
a manger lie;
Whose throne is set above the sky,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

3 Stillness was all the manger round,
the manger round;
The creature its Creator found,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

4 The wise men came, led by the star,
led by the star;
Gold, myrrh, and incense brought from far,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

5 His mother is the virgin mild,
the virgin mild;
And He the Father's only Child,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

6 Like us, in flesh of human frame,
of human frame,
Unlike in sin alone He came,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

7 The Holy Trinity be praised,
Hallelujah;
To God our ceaseless thanks be raised,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
