Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

1. All hail! all hail! this coronation day;
It comes to us along the heav’nly way;
It brings again the song of peace,
The words of hope and cheer,
The Gospel true of glad goodwill,
To human hearts so dear.

Hail! hail! hail! all hail! glad hallelujahs sing;
O hail the coronation day and crown the Christ our King.
Hail! hail! hail! O welcome, welcome, day divine;
The King has come! His glory on the world doth shine.

2. All hail! all hail! this blessèd Christmastide:
May love divine within our hearts abide;
Now ring the sweet-toned Christmas bells,
O angels, sing once more
Your song of praise, while loyal hearts
The Holy One adore. [Refrain]

3. All hail! all hail! this coronation day;
The King has come, His glory fills the way;
The Word descended from the throne;
Before the world was He,
The Father’s everlasting Son,
From all eternity. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
