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

What good news the angels bring

Full Text

1 What good news the angels bring
What glad tidings of our King
CHRIST our LORD is born to-day,
CHRIST who takes our sins away.
Him, who rules in heav'n and earth,
Hath in Bethleh'm his birth:
Him shall all the people see,
And rejoice eternally.

2 Lift your hearts and voices high,
With Hosannas fill the sky;
"Glory be to GOD above,"
GOD is invinite in love:
"Peace on earth, good will to men!"
Now with us our GOD is seen:
Angels join with us in praise!
Help to sing redeeming grace.

3 Now the wall is broken down,
Now the Gospel is made known;
Now the door is open wide,
CHRIST for Jew and Gentile dy'd.
All who feel the wieght of sin,
All who languish to be clean;
All who for redemption groan,
May be sav'd by faith alone.

4 JESUS is the lovely nane;
This the angel doth proclaim;
He shall all his people save,
They in him remission ahve:
When thy see themselves undone,
They take refuge in the Son;
They shall all be born again,
And with him in glory reign.

5 Shout ye nations of the earth,
Sing the triumphs of his birth;
All the world by him is blest,
Sound his praise from East to West:
Jews and Gentiles jointly sing,
CHRIST our common LORD and King,
CHRIST our life, our joy, our song,
To eternity prolong!
