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

Representative Text

1 Sunshine has scattered the gloom,
Awake! Awake!
Lilies are breathing perfume,
While shadows the skies now forsake.

Bells of Easter are ringing,
Sweetly ringing;
Dawn in beauty is bringing
List, the echoes are stealing,
Softly stealing;
Bells of Easter are pealing
Far and wide.

2 Hearts that were heavy rejoice,
Awake! Awake!
List to each jubilant voice,
For dawn in its glory doth break! [Refrain]

3 Gladness is filling the world,
Awake! Awake!
Banners of hope are unfurled,
Let all in the rapture partake. [Refrain]
