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 sound of angel-voices
Over Bethlehem starlit plain;
Hark! the heavenly host rejoices,
Jesus comes to earth to reign.
See celestial radiance beaming,
Lighting up the midnight sky;
‘Tis the promised daystar gleaming,
‘Tis the day-spring from on high,
‘Tis the day-spring from on high.

2 Westward, all along the ages,
Trace its pathway clear and bright;
Star of hope to eastern sages,
Radiant now with Gospel light.
Angels from the realms of glory,
Peace on earth delight to sing,
Christian, tell the wondrous story,
Go, proclaim the Saviour King!
Go, proclaim the Saviour King!
