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 Out of the stillness, solemn and deep,
Over the garden, hushed for His sleep,
Tidings of triumph joyfully ring,
“Jesus is risen, Victor and King.”

“Victory, victory,” shout the glad story,
“Victory, victory,” loud let it ring,
“Victory, victory, triumph and glory,
Praise and dominion to our risen Lord and King.”

2 Out of the darkness, out of the gloom,
Where they have laid Him, low in the tomb,
Flashes the sunrise, seeming to say,
“Jesus is risen, Victor today.” [Refrain]

3 Out of the sorrow, trouble and woe,
Music shall echo, sunshine shall glow,
Easter’s glad message ever shall be,
“Jesus is risen, Victor is He.” [Refrain]
