Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Full Text

1 O may I worthy prove to see,
The saints in full prosperity;
To see the bright the glittering bride,
Close seated by her Saviour's side.
Hallelujah.

2 O may I find some humble seat,
Beneath my dear Redeemer's feet;
A servant as before I've been,
And sing salvation to my King.
Hallelujah.

3 I'm glad that I am born to die,
From grief and woe my soul shall fly;
Bright angels shall convey me home,
Away to new Jerusalem.
Hallelujah.

4 I'll praise him while he lends me breath,
I hope to praise him after death,
I hope to praise him when I die,
And shout salvation as I fly.
Hallelujah.

5 Farewell vain world, I'm going home,
My Saviour smiles and bids me come;
Sweet angels beckon me away,
To sing God's praise in endless day.
Hallelujah.

6 I soon shall pass the veil of death,
And in his arms I'll lose my breath;
And then my happy soul shall tell
My Jesus has done all things well.
Hallelujah.

7 I soon shall hear the awful sound,
Awake ye nations under ground;
Arise and drop your dying shrouds,
And meet king Jesus in the clouds.
Hallelujah.

8 When to that blessed world I rise,
And join the anthems in the skies;
This note above the rest shall swell,
My Jesus has done all things well.
Hallelujah.

9 Then shall I see my blessed God,
And praise him in his bright abode;
My theme through all eternity
Shall glory, glory, glory be.
Hallelujah.
