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

7039. Upheld by Hope

1. Upheld by hope—a glorious hope
As days and years roll by;
The coming of our Lord and king
Is surely drawing nigh.

2. Upheld by hope all toil is sweet
With this glad thought in view,
The Master may appear tonight
To call His servants true.

3. Upheld by hope—that wondrous hope,
That I shall see His face,
And to His likeness be conformed
When I have run the race.

4. Upheld by hope in darkest days
Faith can the light descry:
The deepening glory in the east
Proclaims deliverance nigh!

5. Upheld by hope, Belovèd one,
I hear the Bridegroom say,
Awake! arise! go forth to meet
My chariot on its way.

6. Upheld by hope, how glad the heart!
My soul is on the wing!
E’en now His hand is on the door
He comes—my glorious king!
