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 Hymnary.org, 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

Joy, again the earth

Full Text

1 Joy! again the earth is waking,
Joy profound, joy profound;
From the golden portals breaking,
Hear the welcome sound.

Refrain:
Christ hath risen, wondrous story;
Christ hath risen, Prince of Glory;
Hallelujah! angels say,
From the dead He rose today;
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
From the dead He rose today.

2 On His Resurrection morning,
Grandly bright, grandly bright,
Floods of peace, the world adorning,
Bathe the soul in light. [Refrain]

3 Mortal tongues their songs are blending,
Songs of love, songs of love;
Shouts of praise the skies are rending,
Praise to God above. [Refrain]
