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

The joyous morning

Representative Text

1 Early dawn! early dawn!
Ushering in a brighter morn;
While the angels stand and wonder,
Jesus breaks the bonds asunder;
Weeping hearts no longer mourn.

2 Morning bright! morning bright!
With its flood of golden light;
Jesus lives, O wondrous story,
Lives the King of life and glory,
He has risen in His might.

3 Morning light! morning light!
Scatter far the shades of night;
Mary’s heart, so full of sadness,
Now is filled with joy and gladness,
Jesus thrilled her with delight.

4 Morning joy! morning joy!
It shall be my blest employ;
Telling of the sweet surprising
Of the loved ones at His rising,
Filling all their hearts with joy.
