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

Representative Text

1 Angels speak, let man give ear,
Sent from high, they are nigh,
And forbid our fear.

2 News they bring us of salvation,
Sounds of joy to employ
Every tongue and nation.

3 Welcome tidings! To retrieve us
From our fall, born for all,
Christ is born to save us.

4 Born His creatures to restore,
Abject earth sees His birth,
Whom the heavens do adore.

5 Wrapped in swaths th’immortal Stranger
Man with men we have seen,
Lying in a manger.

6 All to God’s free grace is owing;
We are His witnesses,
Poor and nothing knowing.

7 Simple shepherds us He raises,
Bids us sing Christ the King,
And show forth His praises.

8 We have seen the King of Glory,
We proclaim Christ His name,
And record His story.

9 Sing we with the host of Heaven,
Reconciled by a child
Who to us is given.

10 Glory be to God the giver,
Peace and love from above
Reign on earth for ever.
