Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Silent night! hallowed night!
Silent sleep, calm and deep;
Softly glitters bright Bethlehem’s star,
Beckoning Israel’s eye from afar,
Where the Savior is born,
Where the Savior is born.

2. Silent night! hallowed night!
On the plain wake the strain
Sung by heavenly harbingers bright,
Fraught with tidings of heavenly light,
Christ, the Savior, has come,
Christ, the Savior, has come.

3. Silent night! hallowed night!
Earth awake, silence break!
High your anthems of melody raise;
Sing, ye mortals, your liveliest praise,
Peace forever shall reign,
Peace forever shall reign.
