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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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.
