Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

174. Lo! he comes from heav'n descending

1 Lo! he comes, from heav'n descending,
Sent to judge both quick and dead.
Midst ten thousand saints and angels,
See our great exalted Head.
Welcome, welcome, Son of God!

2 Full of awful expectation,
All before the Judge appear.
Truth and Justice go before him;
Now the joyful sentence hear.
Welcome, welcome, Judge divine!

3 "Come, ye blessed of my Father;
Enter into life and joy.
Banish all your fear and sorrow;
Endless praise be your employ."
Welcome, welcome to the skies!

4 Now at once they rise to glory;
Jesus brings them to the King.
There, with all the hosts of heaven,
They eternal anthems sing.
Boundless glory to the Lamb!
