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. Hark! the skies with music sound,
Heav’nly glory beams around;
Christ is born! the angels sing
Glory to the newborn king.

2. Peace is come, goodwill appears;
Sinners wipe away your tears;
Christ for you in flesh today
Humbly in the manger lay.

3. Shepherds, tending flocks by night,
Heard the song, and saw the light;
Took their reeds, and softest strains
Echoed through the happy plains.

4. Mortals, hail the glorious king!
Richest incense cheerful bring;
Praise and love Immanuel’s name,
And His boundless grace proclaim.

5. Glory, praise, and blessing be,
Lord, our Savior, unto Thee;
Thee let Heaven and earth adore,
God o’er all forevermore.
