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.

Under the Stars

Representative Text

1 Under the stars, one holy night,
A little Babe was born;
Over his head a star shone bright,
And glisten'd till the morn;
And wise men came from far away,
And shepherds wonder'd where he lay
Upon his lowly bed of hay,
Under the stars one night.

2 Under the stars, one blessed night,
The Christ-Child came on earth,
And thro' the darkness broke the light
Of morning at his birth;
And sweet hosannas fill'd the air,
And guardian angels watch'd him where
The virgin mother knelt in pray'r,
Under the stars one night.

3 Under the stars this happy night,
We wait for him once more,
And seem to see the wondrous sight
The shepherds saw of yore.
O Baby born in Bethlehem!
Come to us as you came to them,
And crown us with love's diadem,
Under the stars this night.
