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.

Full Text

1 The Magi of the East,
All coming from afar,
Were guided by the friendly light
Of Bethlehem’s bright star.

Refrain:
O Star, bright, beautiful Star,
Shine on us from the blue,
And guide our little pilgrim feet
Our risen Lord to view.

2 The Magi of the East
Enjoyed the happy lot
Of following that brilliant guide
Which marked the sacred spot. [Refrain]

3 May we, the favored few,
Be guided from above,
That we may follow on to know
The bliss of perfect love. [Refrain]

4 The Magi of the East
Extolled the Infant King;
But we “behold the Lamb of God”—
To Him our carols sing. [Refrain]
