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! rejoice! let all rejoice,
For this is dear Christmas day;
The day when Christ our Lord was born,
In Bethlehem far away.
He left His home in Heav’n above,
And came to this world below,
And this He did in tender love,
Long hundreds of years ago,
Long hundreds of years ago.

2 He was the gift of gifts to all,
Our Prophet, our Priest, and King;
From God’s right hand to earth
He came, Salvation for all to bring.
Then praise the name of God Most High
For all that He did bestow
Upon this world, in Bethlehem,
Long hundreds of years ago,
Long hundreds of years ago.

3 This day to those we hold most dear,
Some token we strive to give,
In memory of the wondrous One
Who came to us here to live.
Who came to give His life for all,
To save us from death and woe,
And who was born this Christmas day,
Long hundreds of years ago,
Long hundreds of years ago.

4 And now to serve this loving Lord
Is what we must strive to do;
To live in peace and sweet accord,
And be His children too.
To live that all below the sky,
As well as the saints may know,
We serve the Babe who came from high,
Long hundreds of years ago,
Long hundreds of years ago.
