As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this
drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!
Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North
American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us
do that. 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.
1 Christ has risen from the dead,
He who suffered in our stead;
Rise we with our risen Head;
2 They who sang when He was born,
Sing again this Easter morn,
Songs that gladden hearts forlorn;
3 He has burst the captive’s chain;
Now they glory in His name
Who for them did suffer shame;
4 See, the tomb has opened wide;
See, the Lord, who bled and died,
Now has risen glorified;
5 On that grand triumphant day,
When things old shall pass away,
We shall lift our voice and say,
6 Christ the first fruits now we see,
Of a harvest yet to be,
When we’re gathered, Lord, to Thee.
