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.

1 Hark, we hear the tidings ring!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Sons of earth, arise and sing!
Alleluia! Praise the Lord!
Lo! what means the glorious strain,
Ringing clear its loud refrain?
Sons of earth, awake! awake!
Angel hosts the tidings break!

Glory be to Christ the King!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
He hath ris’n, awake and sing!
Alleluia! Praise the Lord!

2 Thro’ the courts of Heav’n on high,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Rings the anthem of the sky,
Alleluia! Praise the Lord!
Let its glorious echoes sound
Thro’ the whole glad earth around,
For the Lord whose praise we sing
Is our own eternal King! [Refrain]

3 Vain were all the pow’r s of death
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Nought availed to stay His breath,
Alleluia! Praise the Lord!
Like a mortal man He lay,
In the tomb at close of day,
But He burst at last the chain
And came forth to life again! [Refrain]

4 As a man He laid Him down,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
But as God He claim’d His crown,
Alleluia! Praise the Lord!
Sons of men, awake and sing!
Glory to the conquering King!
Everlasting praise be given
To the Lord of earth and Heav’n! [Refrain]
