Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 Shine, O Sun, in splendour bright
Emblem of the Lord of light,
Who this day rose from the dead,
And captiv'ty captive led.

Sing joyously ye mortals,
For Christ hath op'd the portals
Of life to all again.
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Alleluia, Amen!
Alleluia! Alleluia,
Alleluia! Amen!

2 Now the flowers budding sweet,
In the soil beneath our feet,
Raise themselves from sleep like death,
Praising God with fragrant breath. [Chorus]

3 All the trees and plants in spring
To the Resurrection bring
Signal offerings, and declare
Christ, is ris'n, ev'ry where. [Chorus]
