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.
Harry Plantinga

1 This joyful Eastertide,
away with sin and sadness!
Our Lord, the crucified,
has filled our hearts with gladness.

Refrain:
Had Christ, who once was slain,
not burst his three-day prison,
our faith would be in vain.
But now has Christ arisen,
arisen, arisen,
but now has Christ arisen!

2 My being shall rejoice secure
within God's keeping,
until the trumpet voice shall wake us
from our sleeping. [Refrain]

3 Death's waters lost their chill
when Jesus crossed the river.
His love shall reach me still;
his mercy is forever. [Refrain]
