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 Oh, joyous, joyous Easter day,
Oh, blessed, blessed feast,
When Jesus Christ, our risen Lord,
Becomes our great High Priest.
His body broken feeds our souls,
And blessed life imparts;
His blood, a sacred wine, poured forth,
Renews our fainting hearts.

Refrain:
Alleluia, alleluia,
Let us gladly sing,
Life eternal has been purchased
By our Lord and King.

2 Oh, joyous, joyous Easter day,
For Christ our risen Lord,
Has conquered death and pow’rs of hell,
By His own spoken word;
And Paradise is opened wide
For all to enter in,
The Lamb of God, the Paschal Lamb,
Redeems from death and sin. [Refrain]

3 Oh, joyous, joyous Easter day,
For death has now no sting,
The grave has lost its victory
Through Jesus Christ our King.
We “fall asleep,” but we shall wake
And see Him face to face,
Within the New Jerusalem,
Through our Redeemer’s grace. [Refrain]
