Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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."
