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.

1 See, the seal is rudely broken!
Lo! the stone is rolled away!
Kept is ev’ry sign and token;
“He is risen!” angels say.

Refrain:
“He is risen!”
“He is risen!”
See the place where Jesus lay!
Angels herald the glad tidings:
Christ, the Lord, arose today!

2 Lo! the tomb is standing open
And the Marys weeping near,
Angel tones within are spoken:
“He is risen, do not fear!” [Refrain]

3 Hark! the joyful tidings ringeth,
Christ hath triumphed o’er the grave!
Joy to all His foll’wers bringeth,
Christ hath risen!—lives to save! [Refrain]
