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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Our day of joy is here again,
With love and peace and song;
Come, let us join th’angelic strain
With voices clear and strong.

Refrain:
Glory to our God, we sing,
Glory to our Lord and King;
Peace, goodwill with all abide
This holy Christmas tide.

2 When darkness lay upon this earth,
A glorious light did shine;
God sent a Gift of priceless worth
And showed His love divine. [Refrain]

3 Now to the manger let us go
To worship and adore
The tender Babe upon the straw,
Our Savior evermore. [Refrain]

4 How wonderful that God’s own Son
Should so Himself abase!
He thrust the mighty from their throne,
And gave the lowly grace. [Refrain]
