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 Christmas bells are ringing,
Ringing, ringing,
Happy children singing,
Christ is born.
In the manger lowly
Lay the Christ child holy,
Angels singing, shepherds bringing,
Love and praise.

2 While the star shone o’er Him,
O’er Him, o’er Him,
Wise men knelt before Him
Where He lay.
Forth they brought their treasure,
Wealth beyond our measure,
With hearts glowing, all bestowing,
Hail Him king!

3 Gold and myrrh they brought Him,
Brought Him, brought Him,
Bearing gifts they sought Him,
Far they came.
Now, while bells are ringing,
We, too, presents bringing,
Bow before Him, low adore Him,
Crown Him king.
