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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Sweet are the Christmas tidings
Sounding o’er hill and plain!
Hark, how the heav’nly heralds
Echo the glad refrain!
“Glory to God in the highest!
Peace on the earth for aye,”
List to the mighty anthem,
Sounding from Christmas sky:

Refrain:
“Glory to God in the highest!”
Mortals, to you is given,
Jesus, the promised Saviour,
Hail Him, O earth and heaven.

2 Louder the Christmas tidings
Swell thro’ the ages long;
Echoing and re-echoing,
Peals out the grand old song!
Glory to God in the highest!
Earth, ‘tis your promised King!
Bow with the Kings before Him,
Join while the angels sing: [Refrain]

3 Echo the Christmas tidings
Thro’ all the world around!
Peace to the earth is given,
“Peace,” hear the welcome sound!
Stars in the sky softly shining,
Welcome that bright new star!
Guiding the world to Jesus,
Wise men from near and far. [Refrain]
