Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

The happy morn is come, Triumphant o'er the grave

Representative Text

1. The happy morn is come!
Triumphant o’er the grave,
The Lord hath left the tomb
Omnipotent to save.

Refrain
Captivity is captive led;
For Jesus liveth that was dead.

2. Who now accuseth them
For whom their Surety died?
Who now shall those condemn
Whom God hath justified? [Refrain]

3. Christ hath the ransom paid;
The glorious work is done;
Oh Him our help is laid;
By Him our victory won. [Refrain]

4. Hail, the triumphant Lord!
Thy resurrection Thou!
We bless Thy sacred Word;
Before Thy throne we bow. [Refrain]
