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.

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 yonder stable gleams a light,
Serenely calm, divinely fair;
The King hath come to earth tonight,
Behold Him resting lowly there.

Refrain:
The light of heaven seems to fold
Him as in a wondrous dress,
In Bethle’m’s manger we behold
Him, the Lord our Righteousness;
The light of heaven seems to fold
Him as in a wondrous dress,
In Bethle’m’s manger we behold
Him, the Lord our Righteousness.

2 Behold the Lamb of God from heav’n,
Bow low before His Infant feet;
The pow’r that rescues you and me
Is vested in that Christ-child sweet. [Refrain]

3 Behold the Man of Galilee,
He rested first in Bethle’m’s stall;
Upon this blessed, blessed night,
Come worship Him, your All in All. [Refrain]
