Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

The Word of God a Promise Told

Representative 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.
