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 Hail, thou glorious Easter morning,
Day of joy beyond compare;
Angels hailed thy glorious dawning,
Found the stone no longer there.

Shout aloud, O earth and heaven,
Angels join the glad refrain,
Christ for man Himself has given,
Christ has died, but lives again.

2 Found the grave no longer bound Him,
Found death’s victory was o’er;
Christ, new glory shining round Him,
Reigns in heav’n for evermore. [Refrain]

3 All ye nations now adore Him,
Cast your off’ring at His feet,
Bring sweet flow’rs today before Him,
And glad hymns of joy repeat. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
