Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 Christ has conquered death forever,
Hallelujah, sing His praise.
Nothing from His love shall sever,
Hallelujah, sing His praise.

Refrain:
Hallelujah, sing His praises,
Life, eternal life, He gives;
We shall reign with Him forever,
We shall live because He lives.

2 Earth and air, and heaving ocean,
Show His wondrous power and might;
Rending rocks, in wild commotion,
Show His wondrous power and might. [Refrain]

3 Flowers in tender beauty growing,
Tell the story o’er and o’er;
Sheaves that ripen after sowing,
Tell the story o’er and o’er. [Refrain]

4 Jesus lives, o’er death victorious;
Shout His praises evermore;
We shall see His face all glorious,
Shout His praises evermore. [Refrain]
