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.

Hail, thou happy morn, so glorious

Hail, thou happy morn, so glorious

Representative Text

1 Hail, thou happy morn, so glorious!
Come, ye saints, your griefs give o'er:
Sing how Jesus rose victorious,
By his own almighty power:
To the glorious Son of God.

2 Countless bands of angels glorious,
Clothed in bright ethereal blue;
Straight the sound of Christ victorious
From their silver trumpets flew:
Christ triumphant
Rises, conqueror o'er the tomb.

3 Is that he who died on Calv'ry,
Who was pierced with many a spear?
Clad with countless suns of glory,
See, he rises through the air:
Zion's mourner, now rejoice.

4 Tremble, ye who him rejected!
Lo! he breaks through yonder cloud;
Rise, ye saints, and shout, triumphant,
Victory! through Jesus' blood:
Hark! the trumpet
Sounds the resurrection morn.
