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.

6746. There Is Coming on a Great Day of Rejoicing

1. There is coming on a great day of rejoicing,
When all the ransomed shall gather, their Lord as king to crown;
All earth’s sorrow and its sin then disappearing,
Every heart will the Savior then own.

Refrain
O the crowning day is coming,
Hallelujah!
O the crowning day is coming,
Praise the Lord!
For our Savior-King shall reign,
He shall have His own again,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

2. From far distant lands battalions now are marching,
Who will have part in the honors which Jesus will bestow;
God be praised for all the souls that now are starting,
Swelling the hosts that to victory go. [Refrain]

3. Do you, comrades, feel at times a bit downhearted,
When in the fight all looks dark, and the foe seems fierce and strong?
At such times I find my fear has all departed
When I remember that day coming on. [Refrain]
