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.
1 In the east a wondrous star appeared
Long years ago;
And with hope the waiting wise men cheered,
They their promised king should know!
A brighter than Bethlehem’s great star have we
Along our way;
Christ, the Morning Star, our guide will be
To endless day!
2 How the wise rejoiced to see the star
Above the stall;
And they, with their treasures from afar,
Worshipped Christ, the Lord of all! [Refrain]
3 Star divine! It hailed the newborn Christ,
Our Savior, King!
On the cross His blood for all sufficed,
Evermore His praises sing! [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #9410
