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.

Representative Text

WHEN wise men came seeking for Jesus from far,
With rich gifts to greet him and led by a star,
They found in a stable the Saviour of men,
A manger his cradle, so poor was he then.

2 Though laid in a manger, he came from a throne,
On earth though a stranger, in Heaven he was known.
How lowly, how gracious his coming to earth!
His love my love kindles to joy in his birth.
