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.

Representative Text

1 Now is life, death shall be no more!
Now is life, sorrowing is o’er!
Praise Him, praise Him!
Jesus is conqueror!
Christ who lives will His loved ones keep
Thro’ His power, death is only sleep;
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord,
Evermore!

Refrain:
Carry the tidings of glory, love and joy;
Christ hath shown mercy to thousands,
Life He brings;
Death shall be victor no more,
Nor shall destroy;
Jesus is victor and Savior, King of kings!

2 Now is life, darkness flees away!
Now is life, life and endless day!
Love Him, love Him,
Jesus, the truth, the way.
Endless life all may now receive;
Ev’ry heart who will now believe;
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord,
Own His sway! [Refrain]

3 Now is life! let the nations know!
Now is life! Gospel tidings show!
Serve Him, serve Him;
Unto His loved ones go!
Tell them how Christ came for us to die,
Rose from death, reigning now on high;
Praise ye the Lord! Praise ye the Lord!
Praise the Lord! [Refrain]
