Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Wave the banners of joy today,
For Christ the King is born!
Angels thronging the heav’nly way,
Brought tidings thro’ the morn:
Peace, goodwill, is their welcome cry,
Glory to God on high!
Wave the banners, O wave them high,
For Christ the King is born!

Refrain
Wave the banners today,
Let them merrily sway,
Bearing the joyful tidings
All along our way.
Wave the banners today,
Let them merrily sway,
Christ is born this Christmas morn,
So wave the banners today.

2. Wave the banners of love today,
For Christ has come to reign!
Hear the words that the angels say,
And join the happy strain.
Peace, goodwill, is the message clear,
Glory! O tidings dear;
Wave the banners, O wave them here,
For Christ has come to reign! [Refrain]
