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 Easter lilies pure and lovely,
Rising from their cold, dark bed;
Tell a story sweet and tender:
Christ is risen from the dead.

Refrain:
"He is risen! He is risen!"
Says the pure white lily bell.
May we not the little children,
Of our loving Savior tell?

2 In its nest, each little birdie
Sings a carol, bright and gay;
For to all His tiny creatures,
Jesus brings new life today! [Refrain]

3 Sweeter than the Easter lilies,
And the songs the birdies sing
Are the little children’s praises
Unto Christ, their risen king! [Refrain]
