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,
Harry Plantinga

1 Carolling on, carolling on,
O herald ye the Christmas morn!
Carolling on, carolling on,
Ye seraphs sing to earth a Saviour born;
Joyfully sing, joyfully sing,
Your praises ‘neath the star-lit sky;
Herald the holy One, herald the Father’s Son,
All glory to God on high.

Refrain:
Hail Him, hail Him, herald Him the Prince immortal!
Star-crowned throng O sing ye;
Golden harps, O ring ye,
Hail Him, hail Him, singing ‘neath the radiant sky;
Herald the holy One, herald the Father’s Son,
All glory to God on high.

2 Carolling on, carolling on,
O come ye from the courts above;
Carolling on, carolling on,
The tidings tell afar of peace and love;
Joyfully sing, joyfully sing,
For gladness unto earth is nigh;
Herald the Daystar bright, herald the Lord of light,
All glory to God on high. [Refrain]

3 Carolling on, carolling on,
Your anthems through the years resound;
Carolling on, carolling on,
O blessed Christmas praise still sweetly sound;
Joyfully sing, joyfully sing,
And earth shall echo glad reply;
Herald the promised Lord, blessed incarnate Word,
All glory to God on high. [Refrain]
