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 How bright and grand, how glorious,
The angels’ joyful song,
When Christ, the Lord victorious,
From Heav’n to earth came down;
They sweetly sang the story
Of love to all mankind,
Of peace on earth, and glory
To God most high, divine.

2 The swelling chorus raises
The glad, triumphant song;
They harp and sing His praises
With hallelujahs long;
He comes! He comes with glory!
The Christ from Heav’n above,
To tell the world the story
Of His redeeming love.

3 And ’round His throne so glorious,
Chimes in the angel throng;
The seraphs shout, victorious!
The King of kings is born;
Ye people, bow before Him,
With songs of one accord,
To praise Him, and adore Him—
The blessèd Lamb of God.
