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. Clearly in the east it shone,
That star in splendor bright;
And shepherds on their faces fell
At the wondrous sight.
But an angel calmly stood
With high uplifted hand;
Fear not, he cried, “for joy I bring,
And peace to all the land.

2. In a manger, cold and bare,
The holy Babe you’ll find,
The King of kings, and Lord of lords,
The Savior of mankind.
Fall on thy knees and worship Him,
And bless this happy morn;
’Tis for thy sake, O sinful man,
The Son of God is born.
