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. Wake the Christmas carols
To the holy Child;
Snow the earth apparels,
Winds blow fierce and wild!
See! a star breaks o’er us,
Shines a lustrous gem;
Wake the joyful chorus,
Glory to Bethlehem.

Refrain
Wake the joyful chorus,
To Heav’n’s diadem;
For His star breaks o’er us,
Glory to Bethlehem!

2. In the distant ages
Patriarchs of old,
Prophets, priests and sages,
Of the Child foretold.
And He came, the holy,
Heaven’s diadem,
Dwelt with us the lowly,
Glory to Bethlehem. [Refrain]

3. On the night’s soft pinion
Floated down a song,
Honor and dominion
To the Child belong;
He shall reign eternal,
Naught His power shall stem,
Praise to Him supernal,
Glory to Bethlehem. [Refrain]
