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

The Risen Christ

Representative Text

1. Adown the centuries
The good news lightens;
The moral firmament
With glory brightens.
Good news for souls that sigh
In fear's dark prison;
Ye are not doomed to die,
For Christ is risen.

2. The Lord indeed arose;
The word is spoken;
His tomb was sealed by foes
Their seal is broken.
The stone is rolled away
'Mid wonders thrilling;
Hear what the angels say,
His word fulfilling:

3. "Fear not! Among the dead
Seek ye the living?"
"Fear not," the angel said,
New courage giving.
"Fear not" need any fear
Whom he befriendeth?
An empty tomb is here;
The Lord ascendeth.

4. "Fear not"! Repeat the word,
Rehearse the story;
Tell what your ears have heard,
Messiah's glory.
"Fear not," his victory sing;
His saints awaking,
Shall he in triumph bring,
Their tombs forsaking.
