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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 O welcome, bright morning, we love thy sweet light,
For past is the darkness of sin’s bitter night;
We lift our glad voices in triumph today,
Our glorious Redeemer lives.

Refrain:
O beautiful Eastertide,
Thy wonderful message send far and wide,
O beautiful Eastertide,
We hail, thee, O joyous day.
O beautiful Eastertide,
Thy wonderful message send far and wide,
O beautiful Eastertide,
We love thy refulgent ray.

2 Rejoice! O ye Gentiles, that death is no more,
The grave’s dreadful triumph forever is o’er;
Shout! shout the glad anthem with voice loud and strong,
Our glorious Redeemer lives. [Refrain]

3 The day of rejoicing for mankind is here,
The grave, robbed of terror, no longer hath fear;
Then lift your glad voices in triumph today,
Our glorious Redeemer lives. [Refrain]
