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 tidings! glad tidings! the king is near,
And our glorious Deliverer will soon, soon appear
In the clouds of bright glory to earth he will come,
And the angels will bear us to heaven, our home.

2 Glad tidings! glad tidings! the kingdom is near;
On the plains of fair Canaan we soon shall appear;
There with harps tuned celestial our voices we'll raise
To the Lord, our Redeemer, in accents of praise.

3 Glad tidings! glad tidings! the kingdom is near;
Then rejoice, ye sad exiles, and be of good cheer.
Lo! the promised possession we soon shall receive,
And with Jesus in glory eternally live.
