Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

O Hearken Ye

Full Text

1 O hearken ye who would believe,
The gracious tidings now receive:
Gloria, gloria,
In excelsis Deo.
The mighty Lord of heav'n and earth,
Today is come to human birth.
Gloria, gloria,
In excelsis Deo.

2 O hearken ye who long for peace,
Your troubled searching now may cease.
Gloria, gloria,
In excelsis Deo.
For at this cradle you shall find
God's healing grace for all mankind.
Gloria, gloria,
In excelsis Deo.

3 O hearken ye who long for love,
And turn your hearts to God above.
Gloria, gloria,
In excelsis Deo.
The angel's song the wonder tells:
Now Love Incarnate with us dwells!
Gloria, gloria,
In excelsis Deo.
