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.

Representative Text

1. When Christ, the Son of God, arose
Triumphant from the tomb,
He left within the lamp of faith,
To take away its gloom;
Awake, awake, ye souls redeemed,
With holy rapture sing,

O grave, where is thy victory?
O death, where is thy sting?

2. Lift up your heads, ye heav’nly gates,
The mighty work is done;
A broken seal, a lifted rock,
Proclaim the battle won.
Lift up your heads, ye heav’nly gates,
While saints with rapture sing, [Refrain]

3. He lives, our great Redeemer lives!
And we who now believe,
And bear the cross with patience here,
Shall life through Him receive.
Our thankful hearts adore His love,
Our souls with rapture sing, [Refrain]
