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 “He is risen!” cried the angel at the doorway,
When they found the empty tomb where he had lain,
He had rent the mighty bars of death asunder,
And in triumph rose forevermore to reign.

He rose, he rose,
He rose and blest the bed,
He rose, he rose,
Triumphant from the dead!

2 “He is risen!” now O grave where is thy vict’ry?
Death, so full of terrors, now where is thy sting?
Jesus spread a shining light within the valley,
Glory to his name, let men and angels sing! [Refrain]

3 “He is risen!” spread the news to ev’ry nation,
On the cross he suffered for the sons of men,
But he rose! he rose! my Savior, my Redeemer,
Shout the blessed tidings, Jesus lives again! [Refrain]
