We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

I Love to Hear the Story

I love to hear the story, Of Jesus and His birth

Author: Jennie Ree
Tune: [I love to hear the story] (Gabriel)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 I love to hear the story
Of Jesus and His birth;
How He, the Lord of glory,
Came down to dwell on earth;
He laid aside His splendor,
His royal diadem,
Became an infant tender,--
The Babe of Bethlehem.

Refrain:
I love to hear the story
Of Jesus and HIs birth,
How He, the Lord of glory,
Came down to dwell on earth;
How He, the Lord of glory,
Came down to dwell on earth.

2 I love the blessed story
Of Jesus and His throne,
Exalted, crowned with glory,
Whom saints and angels own;
Loud songs of acclamation
To Him they gladly raise,
The Author of salvation
Triumphantly they praise. [Refrain]

3 There on the hills of glory,
The sacred mount above,
I'll celebrate the story
Of Jesus and His love;
I'll gaze upon His glory,
The beauties of His face,
And sing the wondrous story
Of His redeeming grace. [Refrain]
