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

110. Joy cometh in the morning

1 Oh, weary pilgrim, lift your head,
For joy cometh in the morning!
For God in his own word hath said
That joy cometh in the morning!

Chorus:
Joy cometh in the morning!
Joy cometh in the morning!
Weeping may endure,
May endure for a night,
But joy cometh in the morning.

2 Ye feeble saints, dismiss your fears,
For joy cometh in the morning!
And weeping mourners, dry your tears,
For joy cometh in the morning. [Chorus]

3 Let every tearful eye look up,
For joy cometh in the morning!
And every trembling sinner hope,
For joy cometh in the morning! [Chorus]

4 Our God will wipe our tears away,
For joy cometh in the morning!
Sorrow and sighing flee away,
For joy cometh in the morning! [Chorus]
