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 Joy to the sons of men
On this bright Christmas morn!
List to the welcome words again
That charm our waiting hearts, as when
The shepherds heard with glad amaze
Th’announcement of angelic lays,
"A Savior Christ is born,
A Savior Christ is born,
A Savior Christ is born."

2 Joy to earth’s sorrowing child
On this calm, peaceful morn!
The holy, harmless, undefiled,
Can soothe his breast with comfort mild;
The hymn that floats along the air
Shall find an answer echoing there—
"The Savior Christ is born,
The Savior Christ is born,
The Savior Christ is born."

3 Joy to the sick and poor,
"Blessèd are they that mourn";
If they submissively endure,
And trust His holy promise sure:
He comes all sorrow to relieve,
To comfort all who will believe—
"The Savior Christ is born,
The Savior Christ is born,
The Savior Christ is born."

4 Love, joy, goodwill and peace,
Since that first Christmas morn,
Have come to earth, and ne’er shall cease;
To Him who purchased our release,
Our hearts, redeemed from death, we’ll bring,
And humbly, gratefully we’ll sing,
"The Savior Christ is born,
The Savior Christ is born,
The Savior Christ is born."
