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

Full Text

1 Smile praises, O sky!
Soft breathe them, O air!
Below and on high,
And everywhere;
The black troop of storms
has scatter'd and fled,
The Lord hath arisen,
The Lord hath arisen,
Unharm'd from the dead.

2 Sweep tides of rich music
The new world along,
And pour in full measure
Sweet lyres, your song,
Sing, sing, for He liveth,
He lives, as He said;
The Lord hath arisen,
The Lord hath arisen
Unharmed from the dead.

3 Clap, clap your hands, mountains;
Ye valleys, resound;
Leap, leap for joy, fountains;
Ye hills, catch the sound:
All-triumph! He liveth,
He lives, as He said;
The Lord hath arisen,
The Lord hath arisen,
Unharmed from the dead.

Amen.
