Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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,

522. Hush, all ye sounds of war

1. Hush, all ye sounds of war, ye nations all be still;
A voice of heavenly joy steals over vale and hill.
O hear the angels sing the captive world’s release:
This day is born in Bethlehem the Prince of Peace.

2. No more divided be, ye families of men:
Old enmity forget, old friendship knit again.
In the new year of God let brothers’ love increase —
This day is born in Bethlehem the Prince of Peace.
