Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1. Flee away, ye shades of night!
Sweetly breaks the morning light;
Never was there morn like this,
Dawning of eternal bliss;
As the light dispels the gloom,
See! the Easter lilies bloom.

Refrain
Flee away, ye shades of night!
Sweetly dawns the morning light.

2. Flee away, O dark despair,
As I greet the morning fair;
Like the Master I shall rise,
Where the daylight never dies;
At the portal of the tomb,
See! the Easter lilies bloom. [Refrain]

3. Risen Lord and Savior dear,
Let me feel Thee ever near.
From Thine empty tomb there beams
Risen hopes o’er faded dreams;
E’en amidst the valley’s gloom,
See! the Easter lilies bloom. [Refrain]

4. As the calyxes of gold,
Rest within the lilies’ fold,
Sweetly I may rest in Thee
And o’er death cry Victory!
Boasting grave, I read thy doom,
In the Easter lilies’ bloom. [Refrain]
