We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Awake! Awake! Glad Voices Make

Representative Text

1 Awake! Awake! Glad voices make
Sing praise to Christ the Lord,
The living Word in earth and Heav’n,
Eternally adored!
For thankful songs from hearts and tongues
To Christ our king are giv’n,
From hearts of men set free again
And happy saints in Heav’n.

2 ’Tis Easter morn, new faith is born,
The day of days the best.
Sing praise to God! Sing out abroad,
With joy and hope possessed!
For now the Prince of Peace hath fought,
And triumphed o’er the grave,
With holy arm and strong right hand,
Omnipotent to save.

3 No shadows now, our spirits bow,
Our souls are raised on high;
The Son of Man, in God’s own plan,
Has come to earth to die.
No doubts or fear could hold Him here
Detained by mortal breath.
For now He lives and freely gives
Redemption over death!
