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.

1. Glory in the highest, glory!
Saints and angels praise the morn;
Shout hosanna, tell the story,
Christ the Lord of life is born.

Refrain
In the manger He is sleeping;
Scarce we hear His gentle breath;
Yet, O glory, hallelujah!
He hath come to save from death;
Yet, O glory, hallelujah!
He hath come to save from death.

2. Praise Him, praise Him every nation!
On this happy festive morn;
Praise the Rock of our salvation,
Christ the Lord of life is born. [Refrain]

3. He who trod the way before us,
Bore for us reproach and scorn,
See His banner waving o’er us,
Christ our loving Savior born. [Refrain]

4. Glory in the highest, glory!
Hail the Savior’s natal morn;
Saints and angels tell the story,
Christ the Lord of life is born. [Refrain]
