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

1 Rejoice and be glad, all lands of the earth,
Send forth a song of praise
To welcome a King of measureless worth,
Who reigns, thro’ endless days.

Rejoice and be glad,
For our Saviour reigns,
The heights of heaven ring
With hallelujah strains,
Rejoice and be glad,
Let His Name be adored,
Give endless praise and worship
Unto Christ our Lord.

2 Rejoice and be glad, for Saviour is He,
Who pardons ev’ry sin,
He came to the world, His people to free,
Salvation’s joy to win. [Refrain]

3 Rejoice and be glad, give praise to His Name,
Our blessed Saviour King,
In anthems and song His glory proclaim,
A hymn of worship sing. [Refrain]
