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

Representative Text

1 Come, let us celebrate the birth
Of our Redeemer, King;
Then lay aside all carnal mirth,
And joyful anthems sing.

Then let our voices all unite
In singing of his birth,
And show to men the joyful sight—
Salvation to the earth.

2 Behold the Child in manger born;
Behold Him as He lay;
Behold the Saviour all forlorn
But sanctified today. [Refrain]

3 Look on the Saviour of the world,
Behold the Christ that died;
See Him whose death our robes unfurled
And brought us to his side. [Refrain]

4 Let’s keep this holy feast to Him,
In mem’ry of his Son,
Who died as sacrifice for sin,
And bought us as his own. [Refrain]
