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.

Representative Text

1 Christ is born, the promised Saviour,
Heaven with joyous music rings;
Christ is born, the Lord’s anointed,
Prince of peace and King of kings.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Round the earth the message send:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Never shall His kingdom end.

2 Though His infant head was cradled
In a manger of the khan,
Angel hosts are His attendants,
Son of God and Son of man. [Refrain]

3 Christ is born, O blessed story!
Ages old, yet ever new;
Christ is born, extol, enshrine Him,
Give the King His rightful due. [Refrain]
