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

1 Jesus comes with clouds descending;
see the Lamb for sinners slain!
Thousand, thousand saints attending
join to sing the glad refrain:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ the Lord returns to reign!

2 Ev'ry eye shall then behold you
robed in awesome majesty;
those who jeered and mocked and sold you,
pierced and nailed you to the tree,
shamed and grieving, shamed and grieving,
shall their true Messiah see.

3 Yes, amen! Let all adore you
high on your eternal throne;
crowns and empires fall before you,
claim the kingdom for your own.
Come, Lord Jesus, come, Lord Jesus,
everlasting Christ, come down!
