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. Bells are ringing, children singing,
Joyous music fills the air;
Children’s day to all is bringing,
From the Savior, blessings rare.

Refrain
Praise Him, praise Him, all creation,
Ceaseless praise to Him outpour;
Fill the skies with jubilation;
Praise the Lord forevermore.

2. Gather ’round Him, young and hoary,
Praise Him for this day of days;
Spread abroad His matchless glory,
Sing with heart and voice His praise. [Refrain]

3. Lay your gifts of love before Him;
Children, sit ye at His feet;
Let your happy soul adore Him—
Christ whose love gives joy complete. [Refrain]
