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.

Representative Text

1 O glory of Thy chosen race,
Light of the nations, show Thy face;
We wait in faith Thy lowly birth,
God’s glory veiled to bless the earth.

2 Thee, Son of God, from Heaven’s high seat,
Thee, virgin born, we long to greet;
Redeemed by Thee, all worlds proclaim
The wonder of Thy twofold name.

3 This earth has seen Thy sojourn, Lord,
Who now art high in Heaven adored;
In Hell’s dim vale Thy footsteps trod:
The star-worlds hymned Thee back to God.

4 O mighty Savior, King divine,
Subdue this realm of flesh made Thine;
Its feeble frame cries out for Thee;
Thy touch, Thy life, alone make free.

5 E’en now Thy manger gleams afar,
To waiting eyes a morning star,
In each dark night to faith below
Its light unquenched shall ever glow.

6 All praise to God the Father be,
All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
Whom with the Spirit we adore,
One God, both now and ever more.
