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

The Anthem The Angels Were Singing

Author: Anonymous Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #11636 Meter: D Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal Lyrics: 1 The anthem the angels were singing, O’er Bethlehem’s plains long ago, Still down through the ages ringing, The comfort of millions below; The anthem of joy and salvation, Of love to a sin-stricken race, To every kindred and nation, Good will from the Father of peace. 2 The star which the wise men were guiding, O’er far distant lands long ago, Is still in the heavens abiding, The holy child Jesus to show; Inviting the world to adore Him, To bow like the magi of old, And cast down their treasures before Him, The heart’s purest incense and gold. 3 We gather this festival evening, Our Lord and our Savior to seek, With garlands His temple adorning, With praises His goodness to speak, Far more than the shepherd or wise men We long the dear Savior to see, For He has said: "Suffer the children, The children to come unto Me." Languages: English Tune Title: KINGDOM OF SONG
