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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

10663. "Behold, I Come," The Savior Cries

1 "Behold, I come," the Savior cries,
“With wingèd speed I come;
My voice shall call your souls away
To their eternal home.

2 “Awake, ye sons of sloth, awake;
Your vain amusements cease;
And strive with your united powers,
That ye be found in peace.

3 “Seize the blest hour with ardent haste,
Nor slight this peaceful word,
Lest your affrighted souls in vain
Fly from My flaming sword.

4 "Happy the man, whose ready heart
Obeys the sacred call;
And shelters in My covenant grace
His everlasting all."

5 Blest Jesus, whose all searching eye
My inmost powers can see,
Dost Thou not know my willing soul
Has lodged that all with Thee?

6 These eager eyes Thy signal wait;
My dear Redeemer, come;
I rove a weary pilgrim here,
And long to be at home.
