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.

Representative Text

1 Hark! from the fields triumphant life is springing,
Forth from the earth ascension bells are ringing;
There’s no room for pain and grief,
Easter time brings sweet relief,
Life now pushes bud and leaf,
Life, life life!

Life, life, life, exultant life, we meet thee;
Life, life, life, triumphant life, we greet thee;
No more the tomb affrights with its gloom,
For death hath given place to life.

2 Nature awakes from winter’s stern dominion,
Upward faith soars on airy, buoyant pinion;
Earth hath time for naught but joy,
Rapture sweet, without alloy,
Men their highest praise employ,
Life, life, life! [Refrain]

3 Our souls look up from error’s doubts appalling,
Forth to the skies where faith and hope are calling;
All our fears are past and gone;
Light of life, shine freely on;
Hail the resurrection dawn,
Life, life, life! [Refrain]
