Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

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

4082. Let Us Rejoice, the Fight Is Won

1. Let us rejoice, the fight is won,
Darkness is conquered, death undone,
Life triumphant! Alleluia!
So age to age each nation grows
More like the heart of Him who rose.

Refrain
Alleluia, alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2. Joy comes again! all shall be well,
Friends severed now in Heav’n shall dwell
Reunited! Alleluia!
The end of all our ways is love,
Then rise with Him to things above. [Refrain]

3. Thou boundless power, Thou God on high,
How could Thy children fear to die?
Joy immortal! Alleluia!
Thy right rewards, Thy love forgives;
We know that our Redeemer lives. [Refrain]
