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

As Christ the Lord ascended

Representative Text

1. As Christ the Lord ascended,
So he will come again
In glory bright; O wondrous sight!
Upon the earth to reign.

Glory to Jesus forever!
The good news tell again:
He will return in glory bright,
Return on the earth to reign.
Glory to Jesus forever!
The good news tell again:
He will return to pow'r and might,
Return on the earth to reign.

2. In that great day of triumph
The sound of strife shall cease,
And hand clasp hand in all the land,
In bonds of perfect peace. [Chorus]

3. Dark lands by man forsaken,
The dreary desert's gloom,
Before our sight in beauty bright,
Fair as the rose shall bloom. [Chorus]
