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.

Sing, all ye angels in glory

Representative Text

1. Sing, all ye angels in glory,
Shout, ye his saints the blest story;
Fill the whole earth with this joyful refrain,
With rapture repeat it again and again,
"Christ our Redeemer, the mighty to save,
Hath gloriously triumphed o'er sin and the grave;"
Let loud hallelujahs in chorus arise
To him who now dwelleth above in the skies.

2. Cruel the fetters that bound him,
Shadows and darkness around him,
Held as a captive within Death's domain,
In that hewn grave where man never had lain;
Sealed was its portal, unbroken its gloom,
Yet by his presence he hallowed the tomb;
And in deep silence enshrouded he lay,
While angels kept guard till the third dawning day.

3. Hail! blessed Jesus victorious,
Hail! to thy name ever glorious,
Worship and honor to thee doth belong,
All nations uniting thy praises prolong;
Thou hast arisen to die nevermore,
Thou holdest the key to Death's dark prison door;
Our heart's adoration in anthems we sing
To thee, our Deliv'rer, our Prophet and King.
