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. Roses bring and lilies sweet,
Now to cast at Jesus’ feet;
Roses for our offering bring,
Unto Christ, our risen King.
Lilies sweet as breath of May,
For the resurrection day;
Roses bring and lilies sweet,
Now to cast at Jesus’ feet.

Refrain
Bringing roses, bringing lilies,
Now to cast at Jesus’ feet;
Bringing roses, bringing lilies,
Now to cast at Jesus’ feet.

2. Carols sing, and sweetest praise
Bring to Him these Easter days;
Golden gate, lift up your head,
Christ is risen from the dead.
And the resurrection day
Floods the place where Jesus lay;
Carols sing, and sweetest praise
Bring to Him these Easter days. [Refrain]

3. Twine the cypress, wreathe the bay;
Christ, our King, arose today;
Sing, my soul, in joyous strain,
Jesus died and rose again.
So we’ll rise and live alway,
When shall dawn our Easter day;
Twine the cypress, wreathe the bay;
Christ, our King, arose today. [Refrain]
