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.
1 Silvery star, precious star,
Shining over Bethlehem,
Guiding Wise Men from afar,
In the still night leading them.
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]Source: Children's Hymnal #178
