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

1053. The Hour of My Departure

1 The hour of my departure
I may not know,
But Christ in love hath taught me
To watch while here below,
My lamp to keep bright burning
With oil divine,
That at the Lord’s appearing,
My soul with grace may shine.

Refrain:
The hour of my departure
My Savior knows,
And, in His love confiding,
I dwell in sweet repose.

2 The hour of my departure
I’ll keep in view,
And strive, while here I linger,
Some precious work to do,
Some service for the Master,
Or cross to bear,
That I a crown unfading
And robe of white may wear. [Refrain]

3 The hour of my departure
May soon be here;
To me the thought is joyful,
And yonder light is clear;
I see the sunlit mountains
Where I shall stand,
I hear the songs enchanting
Of yon celestial band. [Refrain]
