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

35. Morning awakes, and mor awaking sings

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.

36
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.
