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

Full 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]
