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

This is for us a happy day

Representative Text

1 This is for us a happy day,
Come let us join to sing and pray?
And him our blessed Lord adore,
Who lives and reigns for evermore.

2 Glad hallalujahs let us sing,
To Jesus our great Lord and King/1
In spite of all that did oppose,
He rose and conquer'd all his foes.

3 The Cross, the Nail and bloody Spear,
He never more shall need to fear;
His death distroy'd the powers of death,
And all the force of Hell beneath.

4 The happy news the angels bought,
To those who Jesus early sought;
It is to us the very same,
With them we join to praise his name.

5 As Jesus from the grave did rise,
So shall we too be rais'd likewise;
Our bodies raised from the tomb,
Will fit them for the life to come.

6 There like bless'd Angels we shall be,
With them the face of Jesus see:
We shall enjoy him as he is,
In full fruition life and peace.
