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.
1 Easter lilies pure and lovely,
Rising from their cold, dark bed;
Tell a story sweet and tender:
Christ is risen from the dead.
"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]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #9722
