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 Hymnary.org, 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,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. Fear not, fear not, O ye shepherds,
Rather give ye thanks and sing,
For to you and to all people
Tidings of great joy I bring.

Refrain
Glory, glory in the highest!
Unto God let praise increase!
Glory, glory in the highest!
Unto men good-will and peace!

2. For in yonder town of David—
Seek ye there with one accord—
There is born to you a Savior
Which is even Christ the Lord. [Refrain]

3. This the sign by which to know Him,
Seek ye, then, be not afraid—
Ye shall find a Babe in Bethl’em,
In a lowly manger laid. [Refrain]
