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

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 spoke unto the three,
"Your Lord doth go to Galilee."
Alleluia! Alleluia!

4 That night the apostles met in fear;
amidst them came their Lord most dear
and said, "My peace be on all here."
Alleluia! Alleluia!

5 On this most holy day of days,
our hearts and voices, Lord, we raise
to thee, in jubilee and praise.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

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

7 "My pierc-ed side, O Thomas, see;
my hands, my feet, I show to thee;
not faithless, but believing be."
Alleluia! Alleluia!

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

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