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

Full 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.
