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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Glory to God in the highest!
Hark! how it rings o’er and o’er!
Angels in garments of splendor,
Throng from the bright open door.
There in the heavens is shining
Bethlehem’s wonderful light—
Glory to God in the highest!
This is the holy night.

Refrain
Glory to God, glory to God,
Glory to God in the highest!
Glory, glory, glory in the highest!
Glory to God on high!

2. Glory to God in the highest!
Over and over it rings,
Praising the infant Messiah,
Praising the greatest of kings.
Over the manger so lowly
Flashes the radiant light,
Glory to God in the highest!
This is the holy night. [Refrain]
