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

Representative Text

1. Good news from Heav’n, good news for thee,
There flows a pardon, full and free,
To guilty sinners, through the blood
Of the incarnate Son of God;
He paid the debt that thou didst owe,
He suffered death for thee below,
He bore the wrath divine for thee,
He groaned and bled on Calvary.

Refrain
Good news from Heav’n, good news for thee,
There flows a pardon, full and free,
To guilty sinners, through the blood
Of the incarnate Son of God.

2. Good news from Heav’n, good news for thee,
The Savior cries, Come unto Me
All ye who toil, with fears oppressed;
Come, weary one, oh, come and rest.
He loves thee with o’erflowing love,
He hears thy prayer in Heav’n above,
He all thy pasture shall prepare,
And lead thee with a shepherd’s care. [Refrain]

3. Good news from Heav’n, good news for thee,
Has echoed from eternity;
And loud shall our hosannas ring,
When with the ransomed throng we sing.
Worthy the Lamb, whose precious blood
Has made us kings and priests to God;
Our harps we’ll tune to noblest strains,
And glory give to Him who reigns. [Refrain]
