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

853. When Jesus Comes

1. Down life's dark vale we wander,
Till Jesus comes;
We watch and wait and wonder,
Till Jesus comes.

Chorus
All joy His lov'd ones bringing,
When Jesus comes;
All praise thro' heaven ringing,
When Jesus comes.
All beauty bright and vernal,
When Jesus comes;
All glory, grand, eternal,
When Jesus comes.

2. Oh, may my lamp be burning
When Jesus comes;
For Him my soul be yearning,
When Jesus comes. [Chorus]

3. No more heart pangs nor sadness,
When Jesus comes;
All peace and joy and gladness,
When Jesus comes. [Chorus]

4. All doubts and fears will vanish,
When Jesus comes;
All gloom His face will banish,
When Jesus comes. [Chorus]

5. He'll know the way was dreary,
When Jesus comes;
He'll know the feet grew weary,
When Jesus comes. [Chorus]

6. He'll know what griefs oppressed me,
When Jesus comes;
Oh, how His arms will rest me!
When Jesus comes. [Chorus]
