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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

HAVE you ever heard the story
Of the babe of Bethlehem,
Who was worshipped by the angels
And the wise and holy men?
How he taught the learned doctors
In the Temple far away?
O I’m glad, so glad to tell you,
He is just the same today!

Refrain:
Just the same, just the same,
He is just the same today.
Just the same, just the same,
He is just the same today.

2 Have you ever heard the story
How he walked upon the sea,
To his dear disciples tossing
On the waves of Galilee?
How the waves in angry motion
Quickly did his will obey?
O I’m glad, so glad to tell you,
He is just the same today!

3 Have you ever heard of Jesus
Praying in Gethsemane,
And the ever-thrilling story,
How he died upon the tree,
Cruel thorns his forehead piercing,
As his spirit passed away?
This he did for you, my brother,
And he’s just the same today!

4 Have you ever heard of Jesus
Who was buried in the tomb,
And was mourned by his disciples
In despair, defeat and gloom.
By the power of God eternal,
He arose on Easter day,
And he lives for our salvation:
He is just the same today!
