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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Hark! the mighty tones sublime,
Trumpet tongues of olden time—
Breathing on the silent air,
Shouting glory everywhere!
Hark! again their joyful sound
Rings afar, the earth around;
While a vast, adoring throng,
Catch the strain and join the song.

Refrain:
Unto us a child is given;
Open now the gates of heaven;
Eden lost, to man restored,
Through the birth of Christ the Lord.

2 Mourning captive, cease thy tears;
Lo! the promised day appears,
Through the misty vail of night,
Bursting in a flood of light;
Oh, what wondrous things are done
By the Father, through the Son!
Oh, the smile of pard'ning grace,
Beaming in the Saviour's face! [Refrain]

3 Now with healing in her wings,
Hark! a white robed angel sings:—
"Mortals from the realms above,
I have borne my harp of love;
Hallelujah! sing with me;
Hail our greatest jubilee!
Sing, in purest, sweetest lays,
On this holy day of days." [Refrain]
