Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 In the wintry heaven
Shines a wondrous Star;
In the East the wise men
Watched it from afar,
Asking, "What this lustre,
So unearthly bright?"
Answering, "Christ in glory,
Comes to earth tonight."

2 O'er the dusty highway,
O'er the desert drear,
From the East, the wise men,
Watch it shining clear;
Asking, "Shall we follow
In this starlight way?"
Answering, "Yes, 'twill lead us
To the perfect day."

3 In a lowly Manger,
Lies an Infant weak;
Is it He whom wise men
Come so far to seek?
Asking, "Where the monarch?
Where Judea's King?"
Saying, "Gifts and worship
To His throne we bring."

4 In our hearts, we children,
See this Star once more;
Not as wise men saw it,
In the days of yore;
Asking, "May we bring Him
Childhood's love to-day?"
Answering, "Come, dear children,
Jesus says we may."
