We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Lift Up, Lift Up Your Voices Now

Representative Text

1 Lift up, lift up your voices now;
the whole wide world rejoices now:
the Lord hath triumphed gloriously,
the Lord shall reign victoriously.

2 In vain with stone the cave they barred;
in vain the watch kept ward and guard:
majestic from the spoiled tomb,
in pomp of triumph Christ is come.

3 He binds in chains the ancient foe;
a countless host he frees from woe,
and heav'n's high portal open flies,
for Christ has ris'n, and man shall rise.

4 And all he did, and all he bare,
he gives us as our own to share;
and hope and joy and peace begin,
for Christ has won, and man shall win.

5 O Victor, aid us in the fight,
and lead through death to realms of light:
we safely pass where thou hast trod;
in thee we die to rise to God.

6 Thy flock, from sin and death set free,
glad alleluias raise to thee;
and ever with the heav'nly host
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

John M. Neale's life is a study in contrasts: born into an evangelical home, he had sympathies toward Rome; in perpetual ill health, he was incredibly productive; of scholarly tem­perament, he devoted much time to improving social conditions in his area; often ignored or despised by his contemporaries, he is lauded today for his contributions to the church and hymnody. Neale's gifts came to expression early–he won the Seatonian prize for religious poetry eleven times while a student at Trinity College, Cambridge, England. He was ordained in the Church of England in 1842, but ill health and his strong support of the Oxford Movement kept him from ordinary parish ministry. So Neale spent the years between 1846 and 1866 as a warden of Sackvi… Go to person page >

Notes

Lift up, lift up your voices now . [Easter.] This hymn, in the American Episcopal Hymnal 1892, No. 119, is a mosaic made up of fragments of Easter hymns, pieced together without any regard to the continuity of the originals. It is principally from Dr. Neale's “The foe behind," &c, p. 1148, ii.; from his translation of "En dies est dominica," p. 330, ii.; and Mrs. Charles's version of "Aurora lucis," p. 94, i. [Voice of Christian Life in Song, &c, 1858. p. 100 : "The morning kindles all the sky.") This cento is repeated in several American collections. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
