Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 He is risen, Christ our Lord,
Son of man and Son of God,
Throned on high, exalted now,
Glory resting on His brow;
Yet for us He careth still;
“Peace on earth, to men good will,”
Angel voices yet proclaim,
While they praise His holy name.

2 He is risen, Christ our King;
Seraph bands their offerings bring;
Saints with wonder and delight,
Chant His praises day and night;
Yet, amid the holy throng,
He will listen to our song;
And He heareth us alway,
Though in feebleness we pray.

3 He is risen, Christ our All;
Looking up to Him we call:
Thou, our life, the truth, the way,
Be our helper day by day;
Guard and guide and keep us still,
Teach us here to do Thy will,
Till we there, among the blest,
Enter Thine eternal rest.
