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.
1 Swing, snowy lilies, to and fro;
Tell ye the story soft and low;
Jesus is risen, empty the grave;
Victor triumphant, He cometh to save.
Sing, snowy lilies! Oh, tell out your joy!
Tell out your joy! Tell out your joy!
Lift the glad carol, the victor’s palm wave,
Jesus is risen, almighty to save!
2 Swing, snowy lilies, tell it wide,
Once more He lives, the Crucified;
Pain of the scourging and cross are past;
His is the vict’ry at last, yes, at last. [Refrain]
3 Swing, snowy lilies, pure and white,
Bring ye love’s off’ring, life and light;
Beauty and fragrance, your all now bring
Into His presence, the great risen King. [Refrain]
