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 Chime the bells! lift high your voices!
Bring rich gifts, for well you may!
All mankind this day rejoices—
Mary’s Son was born today!

Refrain:
Sweep your harps, you host forgiven!
Night gave way to breaking morn;
Swinging gates gave glimpse of Heaven
On that day the Christ was born.

2 Let our songs abound in gladness,
let our homes be bright and gay!
Let all hearts forget their sadness—
Christ the Lord was born today! [Refrain]

3 Let our songs in vast assembly,
Worship God for gift so great;
Babe today, but years of manhood
Made His cross our best estate! [Refrain]
