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.

1 The Easter sunshine breaks again
On all the sinful earth,
More glorious than the starlit morn,
We've sang at Jesus' Birth!
We've watch'd beside our Saviour's Cross,
We've sorrowed at His Grave;
But now He's broken Death's dark bands,
Our Jesus, strong to save!

2 Fair blossoms on the Easter morn
Fling forth their fragrance sweet,
And tell of Resurrection-joy,
And Jesus' work complete!
But fairer still the offering
Each loving heart should bring,
Of faith and love and penitence,
To Christ, its risen King.

3 So on this glorious Easter-day
Our gladsome songs we raise,
And echo e'en to Heaven's own gates
Our happy notes of praise!
For He who died is risen again,
"The Life, the Truth, the Way!"
Sing on, ye happy Christian hearts,
The Lord is risen to-day.
