We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

1. En betleĥema gastejo por Vi ekmankis la loko,
kaj Vi naskiĝis, Jesuo, en frida stal', en la trogo.

Por Vi ekmankis la loko, sur teron kiam Vi venis,

Adaman damnon nuligi, al ni redoni ĉielon,

2, kaj tio, kvankam Vi venis ĉielan fajron bruligi,
per Via nobla sufero de mond' pereon haltigi,

kaj kvankam esti Vi volis por ni de l' vivo la pano,

kaj nin por ĉiam regali per paco, ĝojo kaj amo.

3. Dum vulpo kavon posedas kaj birdo sian nesteton,
por Vi ekmankis gastejo, Vi devis serĉi trogeton.

Kaj kial inter la homoj militoj estas kaj krimoj?

Ĉar por Vi mankas la loko en multaj homaj animoj.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
