We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Ring out, ring out, O Christmas bells!
A tale of joy your music tells;
A Savior King was born today
To rule the hearts of men for aye.

For this we join to swell the strain
The angels sang o’er Judah’s plain!
Glory to God, good will to men,
Shall rise and fill the heav’ns again.

2 O Lord of lords, and King of kings,
Sweet peace and joy Thy presence brings;
We know the Father loves us well
To rescue thus our souls from hell. [Refrain]

3 But who can measure all the love
That brought Thee from Thy throne above,
With us to live, for us to die,
That we might reign with Thee on high. [Refrain]

4 Dear Savior, elder brother, friend,
Abide with us till life shall end;
And then, when death shall set us free,
Within the kingdom won by Thee. [Refrain]
