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,
Harry Plantinga

1. Merry, merry chiming bells,
Clear and sweet their carol swells,
Joyful news their music tells,
Glory in the highest:

Refrain
Glory be to God on high,
Glory in the highest.

2. In a manger far away,
Once the infant Savior lay;
We will sing His birth today,
Glory in the highest: [Refrain]

3. Let the glorious tidings fly,
Angels sing, and earth reply;
Glory be to God on high!
Glory in the highest: [Refrain]
