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.

1. Welcome, sweet dawning of the morn,
That saw our Savior rise;
Welcome the glorious, sacred light,
That burst yon eastern skies.
Serene and calm at early dawn,
While nature breathed repose,
Ere Mary sought that lonely tomb,
Our dear Redeemer rose.

Refrain
He rose, He rose, He rose!
Triumphant over His foes!

2. We’ll join with angels in their song,
Loud hallelujahs sing;
Come one and all, His praise prolong,
Till Heav’n with echoes ring.
We magnify a risen Lord,
Though once for sinners slain;
He bore our sorrows and our cares,
Yet lives in Heaven again. [Refrain]

3. Sing victory, victory over death,
Our worst and latest foe;
Our loving Savior broke the bars,
That He His power might show.
List! ye redeemed ones, hear the words,
And cease, ye weeping eyes;
First, on the resurrection morn,
The dead in Christ shall rise. [Refrain]
