We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1. Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Over the hills of Palestine;
There the child Jesus slumbereth sweet,
And we would bow at His holy feet.

Refrain
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Over the hills of Palestine;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Over the hills of Palestine.

2. Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine,
Shedding thy beauteous rays divine;
Light the dark places held in sin’s thrall,
Bringing thy peace and good-will to all. [Refrain]

3. Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Into the hearts that faint and pine;
Show the child Jesus, humble, but king,
Born to compassion and comfort bring. [Refrain]

4. Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Over this earthly home of mine,
How the child Jesus dwelling with me,
Keepeth me pure and from sinning free. [Refrain]
