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

116. O Sons and Daughters, Let Us Sing!

Refrain:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

1 O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The King of heaven, the glorious King,
O'er death and hell rose triumphing.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

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

3 An angel clad in white they see,
Who sat, and spake unto the three,
“Your Lord goes on to Galilee.”
Alleluia! Alleluia!

4 That night the apostles met in fear;
Among them came their Lord most dear,
And said, “My peace be with you here.”
Alleluia! Alleluia!

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