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

As I sat on a sunny bank

Representative Text

1 As I sat on a sunny bank,
On Christmas Day in the morning,
I spied three ships come sailing by,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

2 And who should be with those three ships
But Joseph and his fair lady!
O he did whistle, and she did sing,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

3 And all the bells on earth did ring,
On Christmas Day in the morning,
For joy that our Saviour he was born
On Christmas Day in the morning.
