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. As broke the long and heavy night,
While trembling guards fell with affright,
An angel fair, in garments white,
Came down where Jesus lay;
An angel fair, in garments white,
And rolled the rock away,
And rolled the rock away,
And rolled the rock away.

2. And Christ arose and left the tomb,
The grave He robbed of all its gloom,
And earth put on her robes of bloom,
To greet again her Lord;
And earth put on her robes of bloom,
To greet again her Lord;
To greet again her Lord,
To greet again her Lord.

3. And so our tributes glad we bring,
And sweetest carols do we sing,
In praise of Christ, our Victor King,
This resurrection day;
In praise of Christ, our Victor King,
This resurrection day,
This resurrection day,
This resurrection day.
