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.

Representative Text

1 Glad songs of praise were giv’n
To Him who came to earth,
When shepherds heard the choirs of Heav’n
Proclaim the Savior’s birth.

Singing Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God in the highest,
And peace on earth,
Good will tow’rd men,
And peace on earth,
Good will tow’rd men;
And peace on earth,
Good will, good will tow’rd men.

2 Then clap your hands, ye trees,
Ye little rills rejoice;
Yea, sun and moon and hills and seas,
Raise nature’s meaning voice. [Refrain]

3 With gladness serve the Lord,
Before His presence sing,
O all the earth with one accord,
Adore our Heav’n-born king. [Refrain]

4 Ye glorified above,
While endless ages run,
Proclaim aloud the Father’s love,
For giving Christ, His Son. [Refrain]
