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.

Representative Text

1 Jesu, who from Thy Father’s throne,
Didst to this vale of tears come down,
In our poor nature dressed;
O may the charms of that sweet love
Draw up our souls to Thee above,
And fix them there to rest.

2 Jesu, whose high and humble birth,
In Heav’n the angels, and on earth,
The faithful shepherds sing:
O may our hymns, which here run low,
Shoot up aloft, and fruitful grow,
In that eternal spring.

3 Jesu, to whom three kings from far,
Led to Thy cradle by a star,
Brought gifts to Thee their king:
O guide us by Thy light that we
May find Thy face, and unto Thee
Ourselves for tribute bring.

4 Jesu, who thus began our bliss,
Thus carried on our happiness,
To Thee all praise be paid:
O may the great mysterious Three
For ever live, and ever be,
Adored, beloved, obeyed.
