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.

Representative Text

1. Hark! the angels singing
Make the happy morn,
Joyful tidings bringing,
Christ the Lord is born.
In a lowly manger,
This shall be the sign,
See the newborn stranger,
Hail the Babe divine.

Glory, glory, in the highest sing;
Glory, glory, to our heav’nly king.

2. Sisters dear and brothers,
Sing a joyful lay!
This of all the others,
Is the children’s day.
Hear the blessèd story,
Once as young as we,
Christ, the Prince of Glory,
Slept on Mary’s knee. [Refrain]

3. Where’s a chorus meeter
For His advent here?
Where a carol sweeter
To His gentle ear?
None can come so near Him,
Holy, undefiled,
None so love and fear Him,
As a Christian child. [Refrain]
