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 There’s a song of joy echoing over all the world,
A song of wondrous sweetness, comfort and of peace;
Sung wherever love’s beautiful banner is unfurled,
The song begun at Bethlehem shall never, never cease.

Jesus, Jesus, Oh, shout the glad refrain!
In tenderest love He sought us,
Into the fold He brought us;
Jesus, Jesus, the Lamb for sinners slain,
Oh, tell it again, tell it again, o’er and o’er!
Join with the hosts above,
Tell of His wondrous love;
Exalt, sing praise, and magnify His name!
Join with the hosts above,
Tell of His wondrous love,
Exalt and praise His holy name!

2 How the glad refrain lingers within the heart that hears!
It tells of sins forgiven, of eternal rest;
Of the mansions bright waiting beyond the vale of tears,
Of home where partings never come, and cares no more molest. [Refrain]
