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, 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.

1. Blessèd news from Heav’n above,
Send it forth on wings of love,
O’er the mighty ocean wave,
Jesus died, the lost to save.

Whosoever will believe,
Shall eternal life receive;
Sound the Gospel call,
There is room for all.
Whosoever will believe,
Shall eternal life receive;
Sound the Gospel call:
There is room for all.

2. Blessèd news, O let it roll,
Quickly on to ev’ry soul,
Over land and over sea,
To the world redemption free. [Refrain]

3. Blessèd news for those that stray,
On the mountain far away,
Lo, the tender Shepherd’s voice,
Bids them now in Him rejoice. [Refrain]

4. Blessèd news for souls oppressed,
Come to Jesus, come and rest;
Turn to Him and He’ll forgive,
To the Cross, O look and live. [Refrain]
