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 Silvery star, precious star,
Shining over Bethlehem,
Guiding Wise Men from afar,
In the still night leading them.

Refrain:
Starlight and song
All the night long,
Heralds of morn;
Jesus is born.

2 Beautiful song, wondrous song,
Kneeling shepherds wept to hear,
Chanted by God's holy throng,
Singing peace and joy and cheer. [Refrain]

3 Baby Savior, born at night
In the ages, long ago,
Angels sang and stars gave light
For Thy humble home below. [Refrain]

4 Kingly Savior, throned tonight
In that holy land above,
Crowned with glory, cald in light,
Send Thy messengers of love. [Refrain]

5 Lo, we hear the song o'erhead!
Lo, we see the star arise!
Like the Wise Men we are led,
In the still night unto Christ. [Refrain]
