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.

1 From far away we come to you;
The snow under foot and the moon in the sky,
To tell of great tidings, strange and true,
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

2 Out on a field where the night was deep,
The snow under foot &c.
There lay three shepherds tending their sheep,
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

3 "O ye shepherds what did you see?
The snow under foot, &c.
To make you so full of joy and glee?"
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

4 "In an oxstall this night we saw,
The snow under foot, &c.
A Babe in a manger, laid on straw,
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

5 And as we gazed this sight upon,
The snow under foot, &c.
The angels called Him, the Holy ONE,
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

6 And a marvellous song we straight heard then,
The snow under foot, &c.
Of Peace on Earth, Good will towards men,"
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

7 New of a fair and marvellous thing!
The snow under foot, &c.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, we sing!
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.
