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.

8226. When The Bridegroom Calleth

1 When the Bridegroom calleth from the skies—
For His jewels white and fair;
At the blissful crowning of the wise,
Who will be invited there?

All the wise will be invited,
When He calleth to the crowning;
All the wise will be invited,
To the feast of the Lamb.

2 When the Bridegroom calleth for His bride,
And the pure His palace throng;
There while countless ages sweetly glide,
She will sing redemption’s song. [Refrain]

3 When the Bridegroom calleth from their toil,
All who hold His name most dear;
Who with care have filled their lamps with oil,
And await His coming near. [Refrain]

4 When the Bridegroom calleth from repose,
Those who rest from holy strife;
When rewards for service He bestows,
Who will wear a crown of life? [Refrain]

5 When the Bridegroom sounds the final call,
And the scroll shall be unrolled,
When the victors cross the jasper sea,
Who will tread the streets of gold? [Refrain]
