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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Have you heard this wondrous story
Of the victory for God,
How the Lord of life and glory,
Sin beneath His feet hath trod?

Refrain:
Sing it out, oh, sing it ever,
Till the hills take up the strain,
And the saints beyond the river—
Join to sing, He lives again!

2 Have you heard the wondrous story
Of a wide and open grave,
Out of which the Lord of glory
Hath come forth with pow’r to save? [Refrain]

3 Have you heard the wondrous story
Of the captive souls set free
By the Lord of life and glory,
Who hath bro’t them liberty? [Refrain]

4 May I tell the wondrous story,
For I know its worth so well,
How the Lord of life and glory,
Saved my soul from death and hell? [Refrain]
