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

Christ is born

Representative Text

1 List to the music over the earth,
Loud the merry joy-bells tell of Jesus' birth;
Join in the music, for on this morn,
Christ, our Lord and King is born.

Glory in the highest, glory give today,
Tell the blessed story, sound aloud the lay;
Ring out the tidings for on this morn,
Christ, our Lord and King is born.

2 Peace he is bringing, goodwill to men,
Gifts of grace and glory, tell it once again;
O may our hearts for love, Lord, of thee,
One eternal Christmas be. [Chorus]

3 Soon will the day-star shining so bright,
Turn the gloom to glory,—darkness into light;
Glad hallelujah sing on this morn,
For our Savior, King is born. [Chorus]

4 Oh! star of beauty' light up the way,
Where thy glory shineth from the gates of day:
And in our hearts this bright Christmas morn,
May our Lord and King be born. [Chorus]
