Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

The Easter Message

Full Text

1 What do the Easter lilies say,
Softly, softly growing?
Christ the Lord is risen today,
He is risen to live alway,
This the Easter lilies say,
Softly, softly growing.

2 Lilies, ring your Easter bells,
Gaily, gaily ring them;
Joyous news ye have to tell
Of the Christ whom we love well,
He is risen! O Easter-bells,
Gaily, gaily ring it.

3 Sing it, heart that once was sad,
Sweetly, sweetly sing it;
Christ is risen to make you glad,
Sing then, heart, and be not sad.
Lilies, children, one and all,
Sweetly, sweetly, sing it.
