We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Behold, the Son of God appears,
And in His flesh our sins He bears;
The victim at God’s altar stood
To expiate guilt by groans and blood.

2 But lo, a second time He comes
To shake the earth, and rend the tombs;
These heavens before Him melt away,
And suns and stars in smoke decay.

3 Yet, midst this general wreck and dread,
Ye saints, with triumph lift the head:
With glad surprise your Savior meet,
Who comes to make your bliss complete.

4 My soul, a happiness so great,
With pleasing expectation wait;
And while I dwell upon the thought,
Be earth and all its toys forgot.

5 My Savior God, what grace is Thine,
Which gives a prospect so divine!
Come, blessèd day, and teach our tongues
How angels warble out their songs.
