We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And 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.

170. O Sons and Daughters, Let Us Sing

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

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

2 That Easter morn, at break of day,
the faithful women went their way
to seek the tomb where Jesus lay:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

3 An angel clad in white they see,
who sat and spoke unto the three,
"Your Lord doth go to Galilee."
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

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

5 So, on this holy day of days,
with faith in God our voices raise,
in laud and jubilee and praise.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

[Additional verses for the Second Sunday of Easter:]
1 When Thomas first the tidings heard,
how they had seen the risen Lord,
he doubted the disciples' word.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

2 "My piercèd side, O Thomas, see;
my hands, my feet, I show to thee;
not faithless, but believing be."
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

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

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