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 Whene’er we meet you always say,—
"What’s the news? What’s the news?"
Pray, what’s the order of the day—
What’s the news? What’s the news?
Oh, I have got good news to tell!
My Saviour hath done all things well,
And triumphed over death and hell—
That’s the news! That’s the news!

2 The Lamb was slain on Calvary—
That’s the news! That’s the news!
To set a world of sinners free—
That’s the news! That’s the news!
For us He bowed His sacred head,
For us His precious blood was shed,
And now He’s risen from the dead,
That’s the news! That’s the news!

3 The Lord has pardon'd all my sin—
That’s the news! That’s the news!
I feel the witness now within—
That’s the news! That’s the news!
And since He took my guilt away,
And taught me how to watch and pray,
I’m happy now from day to day—
That’s the news! That’s the news!

4 And Jesus Christ can save you too—
That’s the news! That’s the news!
Your sinful heart He can renew—
That’s the news! That’s the news!
This moment, if for sins you grieve,
This moment, if you do believe,
A ready pardon you’ll receive—
That’s the news! That’s the news!

5 And then if any one should say—
"What’s the news! What’s the news?"
Oh, tell them you’ve begun to pray!—
That’s the news! That’s the news!
That you have joined the conqu'ring band,
And now, with joy, at God’s command,
You’re marching to the better land—
That’s the news! That’s the news!
