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

He Is Risen

Representative Text

1 Ring, sweet lily-bells, ring today,
Your joyous Easter chime;
"Christ, the Lord, is ris'n," you say,
At this glad Easter time.

"He is risen, he is risen,"
Sing the happy story;
"He is risen, he is risen,"
Christ the Lord of glory.

2 Sing, oh, birdies, sing loud and clear,
Your sweetest music sing;
Lift your voices far and near,
To greet our risen King. [Chorus]

3 Wake, gay butterfly, spread your wings,
'T is happy Easter day;
The lily-bell its message rings,
The birdie sings his lay. [Chorus]

4 Sing, ye children, your voices raise,
On this glad Easter morn;
Swell the chorus, sing and praise,
For Christ arose at dawn. [Chorus]
