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 See! the morning star is dwelling,
On the eastern mountain’s height,
See! The day all days excelling,
Bursts upon our aching sight;
Sing we then, the carol free,
Christus natus hodie.

2 Long our watch has been, and dreary,
Long we wandered from afar,
So the wise men, worn and weary,
Followed still the leading star,
Till the Day Spring’s self they see,
Christus natus hodie.

3 Hence, away! all care and sadness!
Hence, and ne’er return again!
Angels sing with notes of gladness,
"Peace on earth, good will to men."
Join we them in carol free,
Christus natus hodie.
