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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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]
