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

1 Easter flowers, Easter carols
Deck the altar, fill the air;
Glorious dawns the happy morning
O'er a world so bright and fair.
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

2 When the clouds of night were broken,
Angels rolled the stone away,
And on this bright Easter morning
Sing we now the triumph lay.
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

3 In the mists of early morning,
Came the faithful to the tomb,
Angel guardians clad in white robes,
Sat there in the breaking gloom.
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

4 "He is risen!" thus the angel
Spake unto the faithful three,
"He is risen" wondrous story,
"He has gone to Galilee."
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King!

5 Now the clouds of night are broken,
Mortals now the story tell,
"He is risen! Alleluia!"
Let the joyful anthem swell.
Alleluia let us sing,
Alleluia to the King.
