Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Lo! a star, ye sages hoary;
Lo! a wondrous star above,
He is born, the King of glory,
He, our wondrous star of love.
Lord of Life, Redeemer, Master,
Loud the shepherds' welcome rolls,
He is born the peoples' pastor,
He the Shepherd of our souls.

2 When from Thee we fain would borrow
Peace for heart and soul opprest,
Child of sorrows, heal our sorrow;
Spirit, give our spirits rest.
Let all evil past behaviour
In Thy love forgotten be,
Let our spirits, gentle Saviour.
Be this day new-born with Thee.
