Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 The Lord is risen—thro’ the gloom
That darkens round the sacred tomb,
I hear angelic voices say,
We rolled the guarding stone away.

Refrain:
The Lord is risen, O my soul,
What waves of glory round thee roll;
No longer wilt thou drooping stay,
The Lord is risen, come away.

2 And forth He came, the Lord of all,
He cast aside Death’s icy thrall,
And by that wondrous victory,
He gave immortal life to thee. [Refrain]

3 The night is over, and the light
Of day’s sweet dawning groweth bright;
Behold thy Lord, thy Savior, King!
What joy to earth this day doth bring. [Refrain]
