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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 All hail to Christ our risen Lord,
All hail the hallelujah chord;
All hail the day when He arose,
In triumph over all His foes;
In glory where bright angels are,
The heav’nly gates are left ajar,
Our blessed Saviour, Lord and Master,
Now lives the bright and Morning Star;
Fear not! nor dread,
He is not here the angel said,
Mounting upon wings of faith and love;
The King of glory rose to heights above;
Lift up the heart today,
For Christ the Lord is ris’n;
Lighting all the heav’nward pathway,
To the realm of joy and love.
He is ris’n, He is ris’n,
Is ris’n today.

2 All hail to Christ our risen Lord,
Now and forevermore adored;
He reigns in majesty on high,
And pleads for us beyond the sky;
Our Saviour-Advocate is He,
Adore the King and bow the knee;
Seeking His face with songs of gladness,
Living in Him, we too, are free;
“Peace be to you,
His greeting comes to us anew,
Bringing joy to ev’ry trusting soul;
Cheerily let the chorus onward roll;
From distant sea to sea,
For Christ the Lord is ris’n;
He will come again in glory,
We, His blessed name extol.
He is ris’n, He is ris’n,
Is ris’n today.
