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,

119. When the King comes in

Called to the feast by the King are we,
Sitting, perhaps, where his people be:
How will it fare, then, with thee and me,
When the King comes in?

When the King comes in, brother,
When the King comes in!
How will it fare with thee and me
When the King comes in?

2 Crowns on the head where the thorns have been,
Glorified he who once died for men;
Splendid the vision before us then,
When the King comes in?

3 Like lightning's flash will that instant show
Things hidden long from both friend and foe,
Just what we are every one will know,
When the King comes in?

4 Joyful his eye shall on each one rest
Who is in white wedding garments dress'd--
Ah! well for us if we stand the test,
When the King comes in?
