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 came, the heavens adoring--
came with peace from realms on high,
Jesus came for our redemption,
humbly came on earth to die;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
came in deep humility.

2 Jesus comes to us in mercy
when our hearts are bowed with care;
Jesus comes in power, to answer
every earnest, heartfelt prayer:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
comes to save us from despair.

3 Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing--
all the past he now forgives;
Jesus comes to share his kingdom
with the sinners he receives:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Death is conquered: Jesus lives!

4 Jesus comes on clouds triumphant
when the heavens shall pass away;
Jesus comes again in glory--
let us then our homage pay,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
till the dawn of endless day.
