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.

1 Linked in the bond of peace
Let all with sacred mirth
Lift up one song of praise and love,
While pondering Jesu’s birth.

2 From age to age this day
Hath blest unnumbered hearts;
And still its light shall wake fresh hope,
Till all we mourn departs.

3 Our fathers hailed its dawn
With praise to God above;
And some recalled the Babe divine,
Till burnt once more their love.

4 And love, rekindled thus,
Was fraught with good profound;
The festal day knit heart to heart,
And spread pure joys around.

5 Alas! too oft ’twas stained
With evils, and is still!
But O! let us hold fast the good
And hate and shun the ill.

6 Let all today be peace,
And love, and holy joy;
And earth’s sad needs by kindly deeds
To abate, our best employ.
