Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

1 Waft the tidings far and near,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Ring it out with right good cheer,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
Merrily we welcome Christmas day,
Cheerily we sing our Christmas lay;
List the merry strains from far away,
Merry, merry Christmas time.

Refrain:
Waft the tidings far and near,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Ring it out with right good cheer,
Merry, merry Christmas time.

2 Welcome, welcome, once a year,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Hear it ringing loud and clear,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
It is not the time for us to mourn,
Cast away all gloom, ’tis Christmas morn;
Wake from earthly sleep, for Christ is born,
Merry, merry Christmas time. [Refrain]

3 Sing aloud with holy glee,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Tell it out o’er land and sea,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
Ring the merry bells in tuneful lay,
Spread the joyful news, ’tis Christmas day;
Everyone is happy, blithe and gay,
Merry, merry Christmas time. [Refrain]
