Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1 Lone in the garden they laid Him,
Low in the tomb, darkness and gloom;
Think of the ones who betrayed Him,
And mourn their fearful doom.

He is risen, risen, risen,
He is risen from the dead,
He has burst the gloom of Calvary’s tomb,
He is ris’n, our loving Head.

2 Wounded for sin and transgression,
Bearing our pain, cruelly slain;
Come and make humble confession,
Nor pierce your Lord again. [Refrain]

3 Empty the tomb where they laid Him,
Broken the seal, bruised but to heal;
Sundered the bands that delayed Him,
Go thou, the truth reveal. [Refrain]

4 Bright glows the place where they laid Him,
Make Him your choice, gladly rejoice—
Be not as those who betrayed Him,
O praise Him heart and voice. [Refrain]
