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,

1 Carol, sweetly carol,
A Saviour born today;
Bear the joyful tidings,
Oh, bear them far away:
Carol, sweetly carol,
Till earth’s remotest bound
Shall hear the mighty chorus,
And echo back the sound.

2 Carol, sweetly carol,
As when the angel throng
O’er the vales of Judah
Awoke the heavenly song:
Carol, sweetly carol,
Goodwill, and peace, and love,
“Glory in the highest
To God Who reigns above.!”

3 Carol, sweetly carol,
The happy Christmas time:
Hark! the bells are pealing
Their merry, merry chime:
Carol, sweetly carol
Ye shining ones above,
Sing in loudest numbers
Oh, sing redeeming love.
