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

Come, all ye shepherds, such wonders to know

Representative Text

1. Come, all ye shpeherds, such wonders to know.
Come, where the young child is laid let us go!
This day to us a saviour is given,
Whom God the Lord hath sent down from heaven,
Come and fear not.

2. Hear with what wonder the tidings are fraught.
Bethlehem's shepherds great joy they have brought.
Good will from heaven, to man is given,
Peace never ending to earth descending,
Glory to God.

3. Haste we to Bethlehem, there to behold
Him, of whose coming glad angels have told.
There to his glory tell we the story,
Glad voices raising Him ever praising,
