Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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]
