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 Hymnary.org, 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,
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.
