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, 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

The Light Of Bethlehem

Full Text

1 Jesus, the Light of Bethlehem
Is shining to us all!
So crystal clear, it’s ever dear,
And makes the darkness fall,
And makes the darkness fall,
And throws the darkness to its fall!

2 Jesus was born in Bethlehem
Inside a darkened room;
But it was bright that holy night,
For He lit up the gloom,
For He lit up the gloom,
His cheery light chased out the gloom.

3 Jesus, the Babe in Bethlehem
Grew up to be the Light!
Where sin had been, He comes right in
And makes our hearts all bright,
And makes our hearts all bright,
And makes our humble hearts all bright!
