We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Go, proclaim it to the people,
Let the glorious tidings fly!
From the grave our Lord has risen,
Nevermore shall Jesus die!
We received the joyful message,
Borne upon the morning air;
Tell, O tell it to the people,
Let them all the gladness share.

Ring, ring the bells!
Ring, O ring the bells!
Go, proclaim the joyful tidings,
Christ, the Lord, is surely risen;
Ring, O ring the bells!
Ring, O ring the bells!

2 Go, proclaim it to the people,
Christ has conquered every foe,
Burst the bars of death asunder,
He defeat shall never know;
Sin with all its shame is hiding,
Death receives a fatal blow,
That He is the promised Savior,
All the world shall quickly know. [Refrain]

3 Lo! a light has burst upon us,
See the darkness flee away;
In the brightness of His rising,
Cometh now the promised day;
Yes, the glorious sun appeareth,
Hope and joy for Israel;
Wake the nations at His rising,
Go ye forth the news to tell. [Refrain]
