Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Sing your carols today

Full Text

1 Sing your carols today,
And your gladsomest lay,
To the PARACLETE pay--
Now to mortals given;
Now sent down from heaven,
Sing, of joy, joy, joy;
And today, raise the lay,
TE DEUM LAUDAMUS, DOMINUM.

2 Death and hell overcome,
Easter morn, from the tomb
Jesus chased all the gloom,--
Ope'd the prison portals--
Freedom brought to mortals.
Sing, of life, life, life.
And the strain, raise again,
TE DEUM LAUDAMUS, DOMINUM.

3 Forty days more with men
Did the Lord live again,
Blessed rites to ordain,
And His Kingdom founded
By the round world bounded.
Sing of joy, joy, joy,
Till it rise to the skies,
TE DEUM LAUDAMUS, DOMINUM.

4 Risen, never to die,
Having gone up on high
To His Throne in the sky,
He sent His spirit Holy,
To bless His people solely.
Sing of joy, joy, joy,
Praise His Name with acclaim,
TE DEUM LAUDAMUS, DOMINUM.

5 With bright tongues as of flame,
Then the Comforter came,
In the Blessed One's Name
Dissipating sadness, -
Bringing joy and gladness, -
Sing of joy, life, and peace:
Him adore, ever more.
TE DEUM LAUDAMUS, DOMINUM.
