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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Good Christian people all,
A merry Christmas day;
Hark how the bells do call!
Arise and come away!

Come see the wondrous thing
The angels’ lips reveal!
And let the joy-bells ring
A welcome to the newborn King,
With a merry, merry Christmas peal,
With a merry Christmas peal,
Noel! Noel! Noel!
Let all upon the earth that dwell,
Sing praises to Emmanuel:
Noel! Noel! Noel!

2 Oh, praise the King of Heav’n!
For on this blessèd morn
To us a son is giv’n,
To us a child is born! [Refrain]

3 Springs forth a fruitful rod
From Jesse’s royal stem,
And Christ, incarnate God,
Is born at Bethlehem. [Refrain]

4 Enwrapt in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid,
Behold Him, by whose hands
The heav’ns and earth were made. [Refrain]
