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

316. He Rose

1 They crucified my Savior and nailed him to the tree,
they crucified my Savior and nailed him to the tree,
they crucified my Savior and nailed him to the tree
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.

Refrain:
He rose, he rose, he rose from the dead!
He rose, he rose, he rose from the dead!
He rose, he rose, he rose from the dead,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.

2 Then Joseph begged his body and laid it in the tomb,
then Joseph begged his body and laid it in the tomb,
then Joseph begged his body, and laid it in the tomb,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home. (Refrain)

3 Sister Mary she came running, a-looking for my Lord,
Sister Mary she came running, a-looking for my Lord,
Sister Mary she came running, a-looking for my Lord,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.

4 An angel came from heaven and rolled the stone away,
an angel came from heaven and rolled the stone away,
an angel came from heaven and rolled the stone away,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home. (Refrain)
