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

Representative Text

1 Alive in Christ! oh, happy day
When from the death of sin I rose;
Sweet was the new birth’s glorious thrill,
And day by day ‘tis sweeter still.
Alive in Christ! my spirit glows
And my glad heart sings on its way,
As it recounts the wondrous word
That reconciled me to my Lord.

2 Alive in Christ! I grow in grace,
And joyous tread the upward road;
Holding communion sweet with God,
I pass the mystic vales of sin:
Alive in Christ! yes, all within
Is purged from guilt and purified;
I closer seek my Saviour’s side,
And joy to see his smiling face.

3 ‘Tis done, complete in Christ I stand;
All former joys are lost in this,—
The deep, subdued subduing bliss,
Lord I am naught: thou, thou, art all.
May thy sweet peace forever fall
On me, for my poor will is gone,
Thine is the best, let thine be done;
For so I love thee, O my God.
