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 Through midnight ages dark and lone,
Oppression triumphed o’er the free;
They set the watch, they rolled the stone,
Upon the grave of liberty;
When lo! the angels burst the gloom,
And Freedom rises from the tomb.

2 Robed in the sable veil of fear,
The mourners haste at early day,
But angels from a brighter sphere
Disperse their gloomy cares away;
Rejoice! O earth, rejoice! they cry
For Freedom lives, no more to die.

3 O Christ, our Savior! Thou who art
The Lord and ruler of the free,
Reveal to every human heart
The freedom that is found in Thee;
So shall the world’s last tyrant fall,
And love and light be all in all.
