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

Representative Text

1. Who is this that cometh in the starlit glow,
As a newborn infant, to the manger low;
While the shepherds wonder at the wondrous sight,
While the angel chorus wakes the silent night?

Refrain
’Tis the Meek and Lowly, Just and Holy One;
This is He that cometh—God’s belovèd Son:
’Tis the Meek and Lowly, Just and Holy One;
This is He that cometh—God’s belovèd Son.

2. Who is this that cometh, this poor Nazarene,
With His timely counsel, with His faultless mien;
With His help and healing for the lame, the blind,
For the poor, the needy, for the burdened mind? [Refrain]

3. Who is this that cometh, spurning earthly gain,
To the midnight garden, to the cross of pain;
Cometh forth triumphant, from the sealèd grave,
Cometh in His beauty, in His might to save? [Refrain]
