Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

46. "The New Song"

Chorus:
Wait a little while,
Then we'll sing the New Song;
Wait a little while,
Then we'll sing the New Song.

1. When the great Jubilee shall come,
Then we'll sing the New Song;
And Christ shall take his ransom'd home,
Then we'll sing the New Song. [Chorus]

2. When the long night of sin shall close,
Then we'll sing the New Song;
And life's fair day shall end our woes,
Then we'll sing the New Song. [Chorus]

3. When the glad shout shall rend the sky,
Then we'll sing, etc.
"O grave, where is thy victory?"
Then we'll sing, etc. [Chorus]

4. When sorrow, pain and death are o'er,
Then we'll sing, etc.
And sighs and tears shall be no more,
Then we'll sing, etc. [Chorus]

5. When to the pearly gates we come,
Then we'll sing, etc.
When we have reached our blissful home,
Then we'll sing, etc. [Chorus]

6. When we shall tread Life's river brink,
Then we'll sing, etc.
And of those crystal waters drink,
Then we'll sing, etc. [Chorus]

7. Where all will be immortal, fair,
There we'll sing the New Song;
When blood-washed robes are ours to wear,
Then we'll sing the New Song. [Chorus]
