Hymnary Friends,

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.

Representative Text

1. Oh, beautiful story of Jesus our Lord,
That brightens and hallows each page of His Word,
It tells us how humble and lowly His birth,
How many His trials and sorrows on earth.

Refrain
Sweet story of Jesus, the tender and meek,
Who came in His mercy lost sinners to seek,
Sweet story of Jesus! though oft it is told,
We love it, we love it—it never grows old.

2. How full of compassion was Jesus our Lord,
The sick and afflicted to health He restored,
The poor He remembered, the hungry He fed,
And gave to the weeping their friends from the dead. [Refrain]

3. But when in that story we read how He prayed
Alone in the garden, beneath its dark shade,
How, scorned and insulted, He died for our sake,
Our hearts at his anguish are ready to break. [Refrain]

4. But now He has triumphed o’er death and the grave,
He lives our Redeemer, and mighty to save;
To Him who exalted forever shall live,
All honor, dominion, and glory we give. [Refrain]
