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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Sing and rejoice! The Lord is come!
Oh, message glad and sweet;
Ye nations bring your gifts of love
To lay at Jesus’ feet.

Rejoice from shore to shore!
Be glad ye sons of men!
The night of gloom is o’er,
The King of kings shall reign!
The King of kings shall reign!
The King of kings shall reign!
The King, the King of kings shall reign!

2 The day of peace is nigh,
Ajar the gates of heav’n!
Sweet hopes that ne’er shall die,
To mortals have been giv’n.
Rejoice, the Lord is come!
Oh, glad angelic strain,
The King of kings in righteousness
For e’er shall reign. [Refrain]
