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.

One day an angel here on this earth

One day an angel here on this earth

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 One day an angel here on this earth
spoke of God's presence coming to birth.
Mary was listening; humbly her heart
sang at the Word God chose to impart.

2 Mary gave birth in Bethlehem's cave,
blessed by the child God chose her to have.
Love was the reason God had become
close to his mother, far from her home.

3 Out in the fields a heavenly throng
broke through the dark with resonant song.
Shepherds, who saw God's glory by night,
sped on their way to worship the Light.

4 Jesus, your Spirit, shining with care,
speaks to the world you treasure and share.
Come with the human touch of your birth;
find in our hearts your home on this earth.
