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

Published in 10 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Awake, awake, O earth!
Thy many voices raise,
And let the echoing hills
Repeat the note of praise.
Let all the isles rejoice,
Let seas take up the strain,
Christ from the dead hath come,
He lives, He lives again.

Refrain:
He lives again!
Our risen Lord, today!
Christ from the dead hath come,
He lives, He lives again.

2 Awake, awake, O earth!
Forget the hour of gloom,
When in thy shudd’ring breast
Thy Maker claimed a tomb.
Put off thy wintry robes
For garb of joyous spring,
Crown thee with lilies fair,
To greet the risen King. [Refrain]

3 Bring treasures of the field,
Bring leaf and blossom sweet,
Thy choicest and thy best,
Before His pierced feet.
While all thy sons are glad,
And tears are put away,
Let youth and age alike
Sing "Christ is ris’n today." [Refrain]

4 Lift up thy gates with praise,
And robes of joy put on,
The Lord of life and death
Hath risen to His throne.
He hath gone up on high,
And giveth gifts to men;
He lives, no more to die,
He lives, He lives again. [Refrain]
