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.

120a. Morn's roseate hues have decked the sky

1 Morn's roseate hues have decked the sky;
The Lord has risen with victory;
Let earth be glad, and raise the cry,
Alleluia, Alleluia.

2 The Prince of Life with death has striven,
To cleanse the earth His blood has given,
Has rent the veil, and opened heaven:
Alleluia, Alleluia.

3 And He, the wheat-corn, sown in earth,
Has given a glorious harvest birth:
Rejoice, and sing with joyful mirth
Alleluia, Alleluia.

4 Our bodies, mouldering to decay,
Are sown to rise to heavenly day;
For He by rising burst the way:
Alleluia, Alleluia.

5 And he, dear Lord, that with Thee dies,
And fleshly passions crucifies,
In body, like to Thine, shall rise:
Alleluia, Alleluia.

6 Oh grant us, then, with Thee to die,
To spurn earth's fleeting vanity,
And love the things above the sky:
Alleluia, Alleluia.

7 Oh, praise the Father and the Son,
Who has for us the triumph won,
And Holy Ghost,--the Three in One:
Alleluia, Alleluia.

Amen.
