Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Refrain:
Behold the star!
Behold the star up yonder!
Behold the star!
It is the star of Bethlehem.
Behold the star!
Behold the star up yonder!
Behold the star!
It is the star of Bethlehem.

1 There was no room found in the inn,
It is the star of Bethlehem.
For Him who was born free from sin.
It is the star of Bethlehem. Oh, [Refrain]

2 The wise men came from the East
It is the star of Bethlehem.
To worship him, the "Prince of Peace."
It is the star of Bethlehem. Oh, [Refrain]

3 A song broke forth upon the night.
It is the star of Bethlehem.
Peace on earth, good-will to men.
It is the star of Bethlehem. Oh, [Refrain]
