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 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

684. Keep the Household Angels Singing

1 Keep the household angels singing, singing;
Keep the pleasant music ringing, ringing;
Gentle love and cheerfulness
Shall our happy firesides bless;
Keep the household angels singing.

Refrain:
’Tis love that makes the home so happy,
Love that makes the home so bright;
With all her sister angels
Arrayed in heav’nly light,
’Tis love, love that makes the home so bright.

2 Joyful be our voices singing, singing;
Hearts with grateful music ringing, ringing;
Daily trials, daily care,
Patience shows us how to bear;
Keep the household angels singing. [Refrain]

3 Words of truth and kindness singing, singing;
Help to one another bringing, bringing;
Having charity for all,
Trusting God, whate’er befall,
Keep the household angels singing. [Refrain]
