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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Day when Heav'n and earth unite in songs of gladness,
Triumph telling, o'er the tomb;
Day when mourning ones can banish all their sadness,
Songs upswelling, where was gloom.

Refrain:
Let us sing for joy, sing for joy,
On this happy day;
Christ is risen from the dead,
He is risen as He said;
Let us sing for joy, sing for joy,
And His voice obey,
Who the hosts of light to victory has led.

2 Day when from the tomb the Christ arose in glory,
As was breaking morning light,
Day when angels tell to men the wondrous story,
Hope awaking by His might. [Refrain]

3 Day when earth may banish all its cares and sadness,
And upraising songs of joy,
Send abroad to all the world the Easter gladness,
Ever praising—best employ. [Refrain]
