Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

282. Lift Up, Lift Up Your Voices Now

1 Lift up, lift up your voices now;
the whole wide world rejoices now:
the Lord hath triumphed gloriously,
the Lord shall reign victoriously.

2 In vain with stone the cave they barred;
in vain the watch kept ward and guard:
majestic from the spoiled tomb,
in pomp of triumph Christ is come.

3 He binds in chains the ancient foe;
a countless host he frees from woe,
and heav'n's high portal open flies,
for Christ has ris'n, and man shall rise.

4 And all he did, and all he bare,
he gives us as our own to share;
and hope and joy and peace begin,
for Christ has won, and man shall win.

5 O Victor, aid us in the fight,
and lead through death to realms of light:
we safely pass where thou hast trod;
in thee we die to rise to God.

6 Thy flock, from sin and death set free,
glad alleluias raise to thee;
and ever with the heav'nly host
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
