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, 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,

Full Text

1 Christmas boys and girls are we,
Full of happiness, you see;
Good and true we hope to be,
All the way along.

Cheerfully our songs we raise,
Happily our notes of praise,
Merry hearted all our days,
Christmas children we.

2 Santa Claus, our friend so dear,
Brings us something ev’ry year,
His old heart we’d love to cheer;
Merry Christmas days. [Refrain]

3 Best of all is Christ our Lord,
Promised in the Holy Word,
Come to earth, by all adored,
Christ, our Christmas joy. [Refrain]
