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, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

The Word of God a Promise Told

Full Text

1 The word of God a promise told:
a king shall come, let all behold.
The world awaits his presence new,
a Child, a Son, a Savior true.

2 Welcome to earth, O Child Divine;
a gift so rare, a jewel find.
Our savior comes, is present here;
accept his light with love most dear.

3 We sing to you, O Child Divine;
we lift our songs, our candles shine.
Now be your light in us more clear,
reflecting love both far and near.

4 O Holy Spirit, stir us now,
inspire our hearts to make this vow:
we will go forth into the night
and share with all your gift of light.
