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

320. Easter-Day

Since Christ our Passover is slain
a Sacrifice for all;
Let all with thankful Hearts agree
to keep the Festival:
Not with the Leaven, as of old,
of Sin and Malice fed;
But with unfeign'd Sincerity,
and Truth's unleaven'd Bread.

Christ being rais'd by Pow'r Divine,
and rescu'd from the Grave,
Shall die no more, Death shall on Him
no more Dominion have;
For that he dy'd, 'twas for our Sins
he once vouchsaf'd to die,
But that he lives, he lives to God,
for all Eternity.

So count yourselves as dead to sin,
but graciously restor'd,
And made henceforth alive to God,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
the God whom we adore,
Be Glory; as it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.
