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 the joyful news, Christ the Lord is born,
Peace and joy He brings on this Christmas morn;
Let the bells ring out and their music tell,
Jesus comes to reign King Immanuel.

In the highest Peace, good will to men,
Jesus cometh, tell the news again
While the angels sing of the new born King,
Spread the joyful news over all the land.

2 Tell the joyful news, night has pass’d away,
And the dawning breaks of a brighter day;
For the gospel rays from the cradle shine,
Over all the world shedding light divine. [Refrain]

3 Tell the joyful news over all the earth,
Let the nations hear of a Savior’s birth,
‘Till each grateful heart shall the strain repeat,
And their tributes bring to the Master’s feet. [Refrain]
