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

27. Dies est laetitiae

1 Dies est laetitiae
in ortu regali,
nam processit hodie
de ventre virginali
puer admirabilis,
totus dlectabilis in humanitate,
que inaestimabilis est,
et in effabilis in divinitate.

2 Orto Dei Filio
virgine de pura
ut rosa de lilio
stupescit natura,
quem parit juvencula
natum e secula,
creatorem rerum,
quod uber munditiae
dat lac pudicitiae
antiquo dierum!

3 Angelus pastoribus
juxta suum gregem
nocte vigilantibus,
natu coeli regem
nunciat cum gaudio
jacentem in praesepio
infantem pnnosum,
Angelorum dominum
et prae natis hominum,
forma speciosum.
