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, 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.

1 Tell, O tell the wondrous story
Of our blest Redeemer’s birth,
How He left His home in glory
To redeem the lost of earth.

Tell, O! tell the blessèd story
Of His gracious love so free,
Glory, in the highest, glory,
Be to Christ eternally.

2 Tell, O tell the wondrous story
Of salvation full and free;
Jesus came, the Prince of Glory—
Lived and died for you and me. [Refrain]

3 Choirs of angels told His coming
To the shepherds on the plains,
While they listened mute with wonder—
Listened to the welcome strains. [Refrain]

4 Let us then repeat the message,
Tell, O tell it far and wide,
Of a ransom for the sinner,
Of a Savior crucified. [Refrain]
