We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

From the regions of glory an angel descended

Representative Text

1 From the regions of glory an angel descended,
And told the strange news how the babe was attended:
Go, shepherds, and visit this heavenly stranger;
Beneath that bright star, there’s your Lord in a manger!

[Chorus:]
Hallelujah to the Lamb,
Whom our souls may rely on;
We shall see him on earth,
When he brings again Zion.

2 Glad tidings I bring unto you and each nation;
Glad tidings of joy, now behold your salvation:
Arise all ye pilgrims and lift up your voices,
And shout — The Redeemer! while heaven rejoices. [Chorus]

3 Let glory to God in the highest be given,
And glory to God be re-echo’d in heaven;
Around the whole world let us tell the glad story,
And sing of his love, his salvation and glory. [Chorus]

4 The kingdom is yours by the will of the Father,
Whose uplifted hand just the righteous will gather,
Before all the wicked will pass as by fire,
The heavens shall shine with the coming Messiah. [Chorus]
