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

Representative Text

1. From the sea the mist floats slowly,
While night’s tapers, faint and holy,
Fade beyond the dawning gray;
Birds within the nest are waking;
Far above the East is breaking,
Promise of returning day.

2. Seraphim who saw unfolding
Earth’s first morn are now beholding
That which will all ages thrill—
They who sang in heavenly places
At His birth, and hid their faces
From His shame, with awe are still.

3. For behold where they have laid Him—
Empty is the tomb they made Him—
Death lies conquered at His feet.
See, He waits to greet the morning,
Fairest thing the earth adorning,
All love’s sacrifice complete.

4. Miracle of love that giveth
Life from death, because He liveth;
O, the crown of victory;
That, while angels fall before Him,
Human hearts can best adore Him!
He is risen, soul, for thee!
