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.
Harry Plantinga

Jesus lives, the broken tomb

Representative Text

1 Jesus lives! The broken tomb
Tells the resurrection story.
Joy has now dispelled the gloom;
Sealed His passion is with glory.
Lightning gleams, and mountains shiver,
He was dead, but lives forever.

2 I have won; the triumph's His!
Death is swallowed up in vict'ry!
Bound the Prince of Darkness is,
Free am I! O blessed myst'ry!
Mine is heaven fair and glorious,
Jesus won; I am victorious.
