Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Text Information

First Line: Glory to God, the angel said


Glory to God, the angel said. [Christmas.] Appeared anonymously in the 7th edition of the Silver Street Sunday Scholar's Companion, 1821, No. 6, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines. It was reprinted (without signature) in Miss D. A. Thrupp's Hymns for the Young, R. T. S., 4th edition, 1836, and on this ground it has been ascribed to her. Positive evidence that it was written by Miss Thrupp is wanting. It is in several modern collections for the young, including the Church Sunday School Hymn Book, 1868. [William T. Brooke] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
