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.

Refrain:
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]
