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

730. Now Let the Heav'ns Be Joyful

1 Now let the heav'ns be joyful,
Let earth her song begin,
The round world keep high triumph,
And all that is therein.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.

2 From death to life eternal,
From earth on to the sky,
Our Christ has brought us over
With hymns of victory.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.

3 Let all things seen and unseen
Their notes of gladness blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen;
Our joy shall have no end.
He is risen! He is risen!
Christ the Lord is risen!
Our joy shall have no end.
