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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 O highest love, in lowliest guise,
To this our fallen world displayed,
May I discern with cleansèd eyes
The Godhead in our flesh arrayed!

2 O Love, the very Word of God,
Content an infant shape to wear,
And in a stable’s mean abode
To shield Thee from December’s air.

3 O Babe divine, before Thy face
Be mine to bow the thankful knee,
And by Thy soul converting grace
Become a child myself in Thee!

4 One only God, the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit, we revere,
The everlasting Three in One,
Creator, Savior, Comforter.
