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

In dulci jubilo, sing Alleluia, lo

Representative Text

1 In dulci jubilo
Sing "Alleluia," lo!
See our Joy reclining
Here in praesepio!
Heaven's Sun is shining
Matris in gremio.
Alpha es et o!
Alpha es et o!

2 O Jesu parvule,
For thee I long alway!
Heal my heart and spirit,
O puer optime,
Through thy saving merit,
O priceps gloriae,
Trahe me post te!
Trahe me post te!

3 O Patris caritas!
O Nati lenitas!
Sin our soul was staining
Per nostra crimina,
Came the Christ regaining
Caelorum gaudia.
O that we were there!
O that we were there!

4 Ubi sunt gaudia?
Where else but here on high,
Where the angels, singing
Nova cantica,
Joyous bells are ringing
In Regis curia?
O that we were there!
O that we were there!
