Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

Morning awakes, and morn awaking sings;
Light speeds from heaven to earth with glowing wings.

Haste to the tomb! Ye mourners haste, with glee!
Christ hath arisen, from death's grim fetters free.

Gone are the night, the terror, and the gloom;
Christ hath arisen, and left the awful tomb.

Death now is dead, the grave hath lost its power;
Death and the grave are vanquished at this hour.

Thou art the Christ, victorious Christ art Thou,
Death hath no sting, and grave no victory now.

Glory to Thee, O Christ, Thy people bring;
Thou art our God, and our Immortal King.
