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, 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,

692. Is It the Crowning Day?

1 Jesus may come today,
Glad day, Glad day!
And I would see my Friend;
Dangers and troubles would end
If Jesus should come today.

Glad day! Glad day! Is it the crowning day?
I'll live for today, nor anxious be,
Jesus my Lord I soon shall see.
Glad day, Glad day! Is it the crowning day?

2 I may go home today,
Glad day, Glad day!
Seemeth I hear their song;
Hail to the radiant throng!
If I should go home today. [Refrain]

3 Why should I anxious be?
Glad day, Glad day!
Lights appear on the shore,
Storms will affright nevermore,
For He is "at hand" today. [Refrain]

4 Faithful I'll be today,
Glad day, Glad day!
And I will freely tell
Why I should love him so well,
For he is my all today. [Refrain]
