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.

Representative 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]
