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 Sing again the blessèd story,
Till with joy each heart shall glow,
Angels bright, from realms of glory,
Told to sinful man below;
While the world is quiet sleeping,
While the stars their light unfold,
Let us hear the joyful anthem
Angels sang to harps of gold.

Welcome, welcome, blessèd Jesus,
Give Thy peace to us today;
Glory, in the highest glory,
Be unto Thy name alway!

2 Glory, in the highest glory!
We would know the tidings sweet,
Hasten onward, gladly onward,
Like the shepherds Christ to greet;
He has come, the blessèd Jesus,
Born to us this happy day,
In our hearts, most holy Stranger,
We will welcome Thee alway. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
