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

The Gloom is past, a Glory lights the sky;
The Easter dawns, the sun is rising high.
The Saviour lives, hath won the victory;
‘Tis thus we pass from Gloom to Glory.
O Glory-lighted blessed Easter day
We hail thy dawn with songs of joy,
O Glory-lighted blessed Easter day
Thy praise shall e’er our tongue employ.

Love’s redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the vict’ry won:
Jesus’ agony is o’er,
Darkness veils the earth no more.
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ hath burst the gates of hell;
Death in vain forbids Him rise,
Christ hath opened Paradise.
Death in vain forbids Him rise,
Christ hath opened Paradise. [Refrain]
