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.
1 There were shepherds abiding in the field,
Keeping watch over their flock by night,
2 And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them,
And the glory of the Lord shone round about them,
And they were sore afraid.
3 And the angel said unto them, Fear not;
For behold, I bring you good tidings
Of great joy, which shall be to all people.
4 For unto you is born this day, in the city of David,
A Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.
5 And suddenly there was with the angel,
A multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying:
6 Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, good will to men.Source: The Voice of Praise: a collection of hymns for the use of the Methodist Church #C3
