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 Send out the glad tidings o’er ocean and plain,
The gospel of gladness, the gospel of love;
Bid earth look with hope from her long night of pain,
For promise of morning breaks forth from above.

Send out the glad tidings,
Send out the glad tidings,
Send out the glad tidings o’er ocean and plain,
Christ cometh in glory, he cometh to reign!

2 Send out the glad tidings o’er land and o’er sea,
The message of pardon, the message of peace;
Say ye to the captive, from bondage be free,
Deliv’rance has come, and oppression shall cease. [Refrain]

3 Oh, haste with the message! delay no to tell,
For hearts bowed with sorrow are fainting to know
The story of Jesus, who loved them so well,—
He died to redeem them from sin and from woe. [Refrain]

4 Rejoice, oh! ye lands, your Redeemer is here!
The word of his power shall break every chain;
The night is far spent and the morning is near,
Joy comes with the morning, Christ cometh to reign! [Refrain]
