Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Ring out tonight thro’ the waiting land
The sweet and glorious Christmas cheer;
For God has given unto us a king,
And we glorify His name so dear.

Glory to God in the highest,
Hear the happy voices singing;
Gladness thro’ the world is ringing;
Glory to God in the highest,
Peace on earth, good will t’ward men,
Peace on earth, good will t’ward men!

2 Far o’er the world hear His message ring,
To all who would His word obey;
And the reward in Heaven will be theirs,
Glorifying there His name alway. [Refrain]

3 Ring out the joy of the heav’nly hosts,
While songs the angels’ chorus sings;
The echoes falling from the realms above,
As the Christmas joy in glory rings. [Refrain]
