We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Never in all human story

Representative Text

1 Never in all human story
was a sight so wondrous seen,
Jesus Christ, the King of Glory,
cradled in a manger mean,
angel heralds in the sky,
lowly shepherds kneeling by.

2 Then the lamp of life was lighted,
brighter than the rising sun;
then were heaven and earth united,
peace of God on earth begun,
peace the troubled world to fill,
peace to those of holy will.

3 Prince of Peace! Your way before you
lies through nameless grief and pain:
death's dark shadow ever o'er you,
but it leads to highest reign:
glory that could never be,
but by way of Calvary.
