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. Sung by angels o’er a hillside,
Sending shepherds to a stall,
Rang the carol of redemption,
Peace on earth—good will to all.

Refrain
Peace on earth, O mighty chorus!
Floating down the stream of time,
Peace on earth, it echoes o’er us,
Ringing still in tones sublime!
Peace on earth, O mighty chorus!
Floating down the stream of time,
Peace on earth, it echoes o’er us,
Ringing still in tones sublime!

2. Hark! We almost hear them singing!
Look! The glory shineth bright!
See the lambs in peaceful slumber
On that blessèd, wondrous night. [Refrain]

3. Mighty carol of redemption!
Mighty King in lowly guise!
Quicken now our comprehension,
Help us see with faith’s clear eyes. [Refrain]
