Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. O the wonder of the story
Of the night so long ago,
In the glimmer of the starlight
And the whiteness of the snow,
When the little Prince of Judah
In His beauty came to birth,
While the angels sang His glory
And His sweetness filled the earth!

2. O the wonder of the story,
Of the gladness none can tell,
When the shepherds saw the rising
Of the Star of Israel,
And a light from out the manger,
Reaching far and waxing strong
Till it touched the darkened shadows
And the world was wrapped in song!

3. O the wonder of the story,
Of the tender joy supreme!
O the mystery of loving
And the sweetness of the dream!
For the little head was pillowed
On a mother’s loving breast,
And the Father’s little children
They shall find the perfect rest!
