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.

Representative Text

1 O lovely star that shone so bright,
While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
To lead the wise men on their way,
Where Christ our Lord and Savior lay.

Refrain:
Hark! hark! the chorus sounding still,
From snowy vale and distant hill;
The angel breathes to earth again,
"Peace! peace on earth, good will to men."

2 O star that shone in brightness there,
Above the Babe, so sweet and fair,
Again you beam above the earth,
And tell the Savior’s endless worth. [Refrain]

3 O lovely star! each cloud of gloom
Thy beaming rays of joy illume!
And all our sorrow dies away,
When thou has brought Messiah’s day. [Refrain]

4 Hosanna! to the Lord our king!
In cheerful voices we will sing,
Good angels answer us again:
"Peace! peace on earth, good will to men." [Refrain]
