Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

He Is Risen

Full 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]
