We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

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

19. Freut euch, ihr menschenkinder all!

1. Freut euch, ihr menschenkinder all!
Gott kömmt zu euch vom himmelssaal,
Er wird gebor'n ein kindlein klein,
Von maria, der jungfrau rein.

2. Er ist der zweig aus Jesse stamm,
Der löw Judä und weibessaam,
Jesus, der heiden trost und licht,
Und der der schlang den kopf zerbricht.

3. Er bringt mit sich fried, wonn und freud,
Vertreibt all's leid und traurigkeit,
Damit der mensch geplage war
Durch Adams fall stets immerdar.

4. Durch sein' geburt, angst, blut und tod
Errett' uns all' der wahre Gott;
Er macht uns auch den engeln gleich
Und erben in sein's Vaters reich.
