We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Sing aloud, ye Christian lands,
Songs of greatest triumph,
For your Lord has burst the bands—
Lives, no more to die.
O sad the night the Lord lay dead;
All earth was steeped in sorrow;
But hail! He triumphed, as he said,
And rose to reign on high.

Sing we loud the chorus,
Sending praise before us;
Jesus reigneth o’er us;
King of kings is he.
O sad the night the Lord lay dead;
All earth was steeped in sorrow;
But hail! He triumphed, as he said,
And rose to reign on high.

2 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
Raise the mighty anthem;
Death is vanquished by his Word,
Christ has made us free,
The stone and seal, the guard at night,
Their watch in silence keeping,
Were all in vain, for in His might
The Saviour rose again. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord! Exultant King!
List! Angelic voices,
As to earth the news they bring—
From out the tomb, in majesty,
He came in radiant beauty,
And rose with heav’nly hosts to be
The King eternally. [Refrain]
