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.
Harry Plantinga

35. The Advent of Our God

1. The advent of our God
Our prayers must now employ,
And we must meet Him on His road
With hymns of holy joy.

2. The everlasting Son
Incarnate deigns to be;
Himself a servant’s form puts on
To set His people free.

3. Daughter of Zion, rise
To meet thy lowly king,
Nor let thy faithless heart despise
The peace He comes to bring.

4. As judge, on clouds of light,
He soon will come again,
And all His scattered saints unite
With Him in Heaven to reign.

5. Before the dawning day
Let sin’s dark deeds be gone;
The old man all be put away,
The new man all put on.

6. All glory to the Son
Who comes to set us free,
With Father, Spirit, ever One,
Through all eternity.
