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.

Representative Text

1 Tell out the joyful tidings
That once the Saviour told;
Thro' village, town and city,
His precious truth unfold;
Tell out the joyful tidings,
And publish far and wide
The blessed, blessed story,
That Christ for sinners died.

2 Tell out the joyful tidings,
That all His grace may share,
Who, trusting only Jesus,
Will come by faith and prayer;
Lift up the trembling mourner,
So weak and crush'd within,
And say, “The blood of Jesus
Will cleanse from ev'ry sin.”

3 Tell out the joyful tiding,
That all who now believe,
The gift of life eternal
From Jesus shall receive;
A life beyond the shadows
That dim these fading skies,
Where pleasure blooms immortal
And friendship never dies.
