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

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]
