Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 O day of resurrection,
Sing out the glad refrain!
And tell to every nation
That Christ has ris’n again.
No more shall pow’rs of darkness
Hold sway o’er those who fall,
If they but rise, confess Him,
Proclaim Him, Lord of all.

Then sing again ye people,
Rejoice forevermore;
For Jesus Christ is risen,
Our Saviour, King and Lord.

2 O day of resurrection
We hail thy glad return,
And pray that God Eternal
Will make our hearts to burn.
We hearken to thy accents,
All times, so calm, so still,
And list’ning, hear the message
From God’s most Holy Hill. [Refrain]

3 O day of resurrection
Let hearts with voices blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen,
Our hope that hath no end.
Sing to the lands in darkness
The resurrection light,
That they may have the gladness
Of vict’ry over night. [Refrain]
