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

483. Have You a Welcome?

1 O blessed Jesus, for Thee we are waiting,
Waiting in joy for that glorious morning dawn;
Thou hast a remnant that love Thy appearing;
Welcome Thy coming, dear Lord, for Thine own.

Refrain:
Have you a welcome down in your bosom,
For Christ to come this very day in final doom?
Yes, hallelujah! come, my Redeemer,
Even this moment, oh, come, Jesus, come.

2 Lo, Thou art coming, the heavens betoken,
Foreboding wonders astonish eye and ear;
Omens now thunder the signs Thou hast spoken,
Truly, O Savior, Thy coming is near. [Refrain]

3 Thrones have arisen and crumbled to ruin,
Since we await Thy returning from above;
Sinners emboldened say, “Where is His coming?”
Truth disbelieving, Thy wrath they must prove. [Refrain]

4 Many ungrateful, despise and reject Thee,
Others professing by works deny Thee more;
But all the ransomed, Thy bride meek and holy,
Joyfully welcome Thy voice at the door. [Refrain]
