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.

323. Christ the Lord Is Risen Again

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

1 Christ the Lord is ris'n again;
Christ hath broken ev'ry chain;
hark, the angels shout for joy,
singing evermore on high, "Alleluia!"

2 He who gave for us his life,
who for us endured the strife,
is our Paschal Lamb today;
we too sing for joy and say, "Alleluia!"

3 He who bore all pain and loss
comfortless upon the cross,
lives in glory now on high,
pleads for us and hears our cry: "Alleluia!"

4 He who slumbered in the grave
is exalted now to save;
now thro' Christendom it rings
that the Lamb is King of kings, Alleluia!
