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, 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

1 Blessèd, bright and shining star,
Guiding wise men from afar;
Bringing joyful news to earth,
Tidings of a Savior’s birth.

Thrice welcome Jesus!
Blessèd, blessèd Jesus!
Thrice welcome Jesus!
The newborn Savior King!

2 Jesus, may we come to Thee,
Lowly bending on the knee;
Costly gifts we cannot bring,
But we hail Thee, Savior King! [Refrain]

3 Sing, ye angel choirs above;
Sing the wonders of His love;
He who left His throne on high
For a sinful world to die. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, Savior, Lord of all,
Joyful at Thy feet we fall;
Hear, oh hear us, while we sing
Glory to our Savior King! [Refrain]
