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

369. O Sons and Daughters

Alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia!

1 O sons and daughters of the King,
whom heav'nly hosts in glory sing,
today the grave has lost its sting.
Alleluia!

2 That Easter morn at break of day,
the faithful women went their way
to seek the tomb where Jesus lay.
Alleluia!

3 An angel clad in white they see,
who sits and speaks unto the three,
"Your Lord will go to Galilee."
Alleluia!

4 That night the apostles met in fear;
among them came their Master dear
and said, "My peace be with you here."
Alleluia!

5 On this most holy day of days,
be laud and jubilee and praise:
to God your hearts and voices raise.
Alleluia!

6 When Thomas first the tidings heard
that some had seen the risen Lord,
he doubted the disciples' word.
Alleluia!

7 "My pierced side, O Thomas, see,
and look upon my hands, my feet;
not faithless but believing be."
Alleluia!

8 No longer Thomas then denied;
he saw the feet, the hands, the side.
"You are my Lord and God!" he cried.
Alleluia!

9 How blessed are they who have not seen
and yet whose faith has constant been,
for they eternal life shall win!
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia!
