Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. There is joy among the angels,
When the children seek the fold;
How they tune their harps and voices,
Gathered ’round the gates of gold.

Refrain
Then to Jesus come away;
Hear Him kindly, gently say,
Suffer all the little children,
Bid them come to Me today.

2. There is joy among the angels,
When a soul by sin oppressed,
To the Savior turns repenting,
And receives the promised rest. [Refrain]

3. There is joy among the angels,
As they bear the news to Heaven,
Of a child on earth rejoicing,
O’er the bliss of sins forgiven. [Refrain]
