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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Christmas, glad Christmas,
Is with us once more,
And all the rich blessings
From the Christ we adore.
So little children sing out the glad cry,
Peace is our watchword,
’Twill reach God on high.

2 Good will to all let
Our banners now show,
And higher and grander
May our anthems still grow.
So little children sing out the glad cry,
Good will our anthem,
’Twill reach God on high.

3 Wave then our pennant
O’er all the broad earth,
Let voices of children
Still proclaim the great worth.
So little children sing out the glad cry,
Sweet alleluia,
’Twill reach God on high.
