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 What glorious truth is this,
That fills the soul with bliss,
The Lord is risen,—a victor o’er the grave, a victor o’er the grave;
The stone is now unsealed,
And Death is made to yield:
The Lord of life! he lives! mighty to save.

2 The Lord is risen indeed,
Come, sorrowing ones and feed
On this life-giving, blessed truth today, this blessed truth today;
Hope o’er your cherished dead,
Hope, though your hearts have bled,
The Lord of life! he lives! mighty to save.

3 The Lord is risen indeed,
Bright gem of Christian creed,
Shine on our souls and banish ev’ry fear, and banish ev’ry fear,
For death’s dark tomb is riven
By Christ, the King of heaven,
The Lord of life! he lives! mighty to save.

4 The Lord is risen indeed,
Strength for our time of need
Are in these words that give us life and light, that give us life and light;
Rejoice, my soul, and sing,
With earth’s returning spring,
The Lord of life! he lives! mighty to save.
