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

Full Text

1. Angels chant the heav’nly song,
"Peace on earth, good-will";
Hear the echo loud and long
On the midnight still;
"Glory, glory," hear them say—
Christ the Lord is born today,
"Glory be to God in the highest, glory!
Peace on earth, good-will to men."

Refrain
Unto us is born a Savior,
Unto us is born a King;
"Peace on earth," O chant the chorus,
Let the world with gladness sing.

2. Unto us is born a King,
Christ the Prince of peace;
Other kingdoms wane and fall,
His shall never cease;
For He rules in righteousness,
Rules in love our lives to bless,
His shall be the pow’r that shall fill creation,
Praise Him, for He reigns for aye. [Refrain]

3. Lift a song of praise today,
At this holy time,
When to Bethl’em far away
Came the Guest divine;
When His star in matchless light
Gemmed the sky that wondrous night,
"Glory in the highest," oh, bow before Him,
Christ the Babe of Bethlehem. [Refrain]
