Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Glory in the highest!
Hark, what angels sing:
Was there e'er such music
Borne on rising wing?
See, the gates of heaven
On their portals rise,
And the song that charms us
Comes from Paradise.

Glory in the highest!
Christ our Lord is born;
Hail His glorious advent
On this happy morn;
Ages long have waited
'Mid their brooding ills;
Now the herald-voices
Wake the silent hills.

73
Herdsmen in their watching
Lift their eyes amazed;
Sages from the sunland
At the starlight gazed;
And they bear their treasures,
Gold for diadem,
Meet to crown the Monarch
Born at Bethlehem.

Glory in the highest!
With the sages bring
What is best and fairest
For an offering;
Lay before the manger
Where the Infant lies,
All your heart's devotion,
Love's best sacrifice.
