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 What a shout was heard in the realms of light,
When peace and truth, descending,
With a marshal'd host in their robes of white,
Sang praise to God on high!
O shout again, ye sons of men,
Sing praise to God above.
Till the utmost bounds of the world shall wake
One mighty song of love.

Refrain:
Ring on, ye bells, ye chiming bells,
Your tuneful measure swelling;
Ring on, ye bells, ye chiming bells,
The grand old story telling.
What a shout was heard in the realms of light,
When peace and truth, descending,
With a marshal'd host in their robes of white,
Sang praise to God on high!

2 There was joy, great joy— ‘twas a glorious sight,
the shepherds gazed in wonder,
When the earth was filled with a splendor bright,
From God’s eternal home.
Great joy today, O let it ring
As on that sacred morn,
When the angel band in a far-off land
Proclaimed the Saviour born. [Refrain]
