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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 That morning gray of Easter Day,
See, women seek the tomb;
On falt’ring feet, with spices sweet
And heats forlorn they come;
When, wondrous sight and glorious news!
Their quicken’d hearts behold
The stone of death now roll’d away,
By angel pow’r untold.

Rejoicing, rejoicing,
We join with them and say:
“He’s risen, He’s risen,
This glorious Easter Day!”

2 “Why seek the living ‘midst the dead?”
The angels softly say:
“Your Lord is risen, as He said,
This glorious Easter day.
Go, spread the tidings far and wide!
Your Lord triumphant lives!
His work is o’er, and evermore,
Eternal life He gives.” [Refrain]

3 O heart bow’d down with any woe,
Look up, the blessing see!
He who hath borne our sorrows so,
Has balm for you and me.
No more to die, He lives on high,
For us to intercede;
O tidings glad! no more be sad!
The Lord is ris’n indeed. [Refrain]
