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

Easter light is shining

Representative Text

1 Easter light is shining o’er the world today,
All the gloom dispelling with a golden ray.
Does the life of Jesus now illume your heart?
Give the light to others, let them share a part.

Give the light to others, to others, to others,
Who now in darkness dwell;
Give the blessed light to others,
They are your suff’ring brothers;
Around the wide earth let the tidings swell.

2 Tell the joyful story of his mighty love,
For our sins once smitten, now he reigns above.
Give the light to others, now the truth disclose;
Tell them that our Savior from the dead arose. [Refrain]

3 Like the waves of ocean, songs of joy are rolled,
Where Emmanuel’s banners pure and white unfold.
Give the light to others, till the world shall ring
With glad hallelujahs, to our risen King. [Refrain]
