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 O come, let happy voices
Their sweetest notes employ,
O praise the heav’nly Father
In songs of hope and joy.

Refrain:
Lift high the strains of gladness
And banish gloom and sadness
O praise the heav’nly Father
In songs of hope and joy.

2 Behold the loving-kindness
On every side displayed,
And praise the great Creator
Whose hand the world has made. [Refrain]

3 The smallest flow’r or dewdrop
That beautifies the sod,
With grandest sea and mountain
Exalts the name of God. [Refrain]

4 Like gentle rains descending
Our Maker’s blessings fall,
Unite with Nature’s choral
And praise the Lord of all. [Refrain]
