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.
Harry Plantinga

Shout, shout for joy and sing

Representative Text

1 Shout! Shout for joy, and sing aloud with gladness!
Lo! In the east the star of hope appears;
Jesus has risen from the tomb triumphant,
Vanquished is death thro’ all the coming years.

Shout! Shout! Shout! Shout!
Shout for joy, and sing aloud with gladness,
Vanquished is death thro’ all the coming years.

2 Not with despair, we view the grave’s cold portals,
Jesus has robbed it of the darksome gloom;
Only the passageway from earth to heaven,
Bright with God’s light, is the once dreaded tomb. [Refrain]

3 We too shall rise from glory unto glory,
Free from earth’s fetters, clad with righteousness;
Shout! Shout for joy, ye angels, join the chorus;
He lives! The Christ, forevermore to bless. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
