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

124. Behold the Bridegroom

1 Are you ready for the Bridegroom
When he comes, when he comes?
When he comes, when he comes?
Behold! he cometh! behold! he cometh!
Be robed and ready, for the Bridegroom comes, for he comes!

Chorus:
Behold the Bridegroom, for he comes.
Behold! he cometh! behold! he cometh!
Be robed and ready, for the Bridegroom comes.

2 Have your lamps trimmed and burning
When he comes, when he comes;
When he comes, when he comes;
He quickly cometh! he quickly cometh!
O soul, be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
[Chorus]

3 We will all go out to meet him
When he comes, when he comes;
When he comes, when he comes;
He surely cometh! he surely cometh!
We'll go to meet him when the Bridegroom comes.
[Chorus]

4 We will chant alleluias
When he comes, when he comes;
When he comes, when he comes;
Lo! now he cometh! lo! now he cometh!
Sing alleluia! for the Bridegroom comes.
[Chorus]
