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

1 This is the doctrine christians need,
To know and firmly b'lieve;
That Jesus Christ will raise the dead,
And cause them all to live.

2 This will support and bear them up,
In trouble, war and strife;
For this affords a living hope
Of everlasting life.

3 Has Jesus died and rose again?
Then it must needs be true:
That these, our hopes, are not in vain!
We shall be raised too.

4 The Lord from heaven shall appear,
With ang'lic hosts around;
And all the dead, his voice shall hear,
Wak'd by the trumpet sound.

5 Then shall our bodies be renew'd
And fitted to embrace
The glorious presence of our God!
And to behold his face.

6 How happy will the righteous be
When raised from the dust:
From all distress and labour free,
And number'd with the just.

7 What glorious views beyond the grave!
Is by this doctrine giv'n;
What comforts faithful souls can have!
Who seek the joys of heav'n.
