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. Crown Him with rejoicing, sing His matchless praise!
Let your happy voices bless Him all your days;
March beneath His banner, follow His command;
Lo, He rules in splendor with a powerful hand.

Hail today Immanuel’s birth!
Praise Him! praise Him! Heav’n and earth!
Crown Him King with glad rejoicing,
O’er and o’er His wonders voicing;
Jesus reigns; Hosanna! cry,
Glory be to God on high!

2. Crown Him with rejoicing on this blessèd day!
Let the bells in chorus echo miles away;
Glorious proclamation! let it chime and ring,
Christ, the Lord and Savior, reigns our sov’reign King! [Refrain]

3. Crown Him with rejoicing! come from far and near—
’Tis the Christmas season, best of all the year;
Bring your gifts to Jesus, low before Him fall,
Crown Him King eternal, crown Him Lord of all. [Refrain]
