Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Title: Sing to the Lord a New Song
Author: Scott Soper

Tune Information
Harmonizer: Michael Praetorius (1609)
Key: F Major
Notes: This setting to the chorale melody ES IST EIN’ ROS’ ENTSPRUNGEN (“Lo How a Rose E’er Blooming”) solidifies its association with Christmas. It also allows a psalm that is otherwise assumed to be loud and boisterous to be rendered in a more contemplative, ethereal, peace-filled way.
