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

Diris el la nokta hel'

Representative Text

1. Diris el la nokta hel'
al paŝtistoj la anĝel':
"Granda ĝoj'!
En la urbo de David'
Di' fariĝis homa id'.
Estro Li de l' ĉiel'."

2. "Li, la granda Dia Vort',
kuŝas tie en malfort'.
La Savant'

loĝas ĉi en povra stal',
hom' pro la homa sort'."

3. Sendis Lin la Dia am',
nutros Lin patrina mam'.
Stranga voj':
Tiu, kiu naskis Lin,
tamen restis virgulin',
in' en virgin-ornam'.

4. Do al Dio estu glor',
ben', jubilo kaj honor',
laŭda kant',
al la Patro kaj Spirit',
kaj al Li, la Nov-naskit',
nun kaj je ĉiu hor'.
