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.

Representative Text

1 Bird and blossom, leaf and tree,
Chime and choir, in gladsome key,
Echo near and far away,
"Jesus Christ is risen today!"
Echo near and far away,
"Jesus Christ is risen today!"

2 Born a babe, on Calv’ry slain,
Ended now the sad refrain;
Henceforth sing the carol gay,
"Jesus Christ is risen today!"
Henceforth sing the carol gay,
"Jesus Christ is risen today!"

3 Ris’n from death to life above,
Rise, then, we to lives of love;
Lives melodious that shall say,
"Jesus Christ is risen today!"
Lives melodious that shall say,
"Jesus Christ is risen today!"

4 Helping hand and loving heart,
Smiling face with gentle art,
Hymning one triumphant lay,
"Jesus Christ is risen today!"
Hymning our triumphant lay,
"Jesus Christ is risen today!"

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
