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.
Harry Plantinga

1. Hallelujah! Raise the Song

1. Hallelujah! raise the song, "Jesus Christ is risen:" Let the Church the note prolong, "Jesus Christ is risen!" Her loving and triumphant Head, Captivity has captive led, And ev'ry foe has vanquished. Hallelujah! 2. Hallelujah! let the cry, "Jesus Christ is risen," Wake each harp string of the sky, "Jesus Christ is risen!" The Sealèd Stone is rolled away, Death and the grave have lost their prey For Jesus Christ is ris'n today. Hallelujah! 3. Hallelujah! dry the tear, "Jesus Christ is risen;" Sound o'er ev'ry silent bier, "Jesus Christ is risen!" Thrice blessèd pledge, ye mourners keep, Who for you lost and loved ones weep, Because He lives, they only sleep. Hallelujah! 4. Hallelujah! let the sound, "Jesus Christ is risen," Circulate the world around, "Jesus Christ is risen!" Soon may the world's great Easter be, When, her now bondaged children free, Exultant, Lord, shall reign with Thee. Hallelujah!
