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.

Representative Text

Joy! joy! joy! So happy now are we,
Sing! sing! sing! Our hearts are full of glee,
Clap! clap! clap! so joyously and free,
Because it is Christmas time.

1 Little children, joyful sing
Praises to your Savior King;
Let the air with music ring,
This happy, happy Christmas time. [Refrain]

2 Christmas gifts for great and small,
Christ the greatest gift of all;
May His blessings on us fall
This merry, merry, Christmas time. [Refrain]

3 Jesus comes to bring us peace,
From all pain and care release;
Ne’er His reign on earth shall cease,
Be glad for merry Christmas time. [Refrain]
