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

Representative Text

1. Little children, come and learn,
Learn the sweet old story;
Christ was once a child like you,
Now is King of glory.

Refrain
Ring, bells ring, Christ is King,
Christ is King of glory;
Christ was born in Bethlehem,
Christ, the King of glory.

2. Stars and angels sang aloud,
Peace on earth, and glory
To the God who from above
Sent this wondrous story. [Refrain]

3. Stars and angels sing again,
Tell the gladsome story!
Answer to the joyous bells,
Christ is King of glory. [Refrain]
