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.

Come, Thou glorious day of promise

Come, Thou glorious day of promise

Tune: RUTH (Smyth)
Published in 9 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Come, thou glorious day of promise;
Come and spread thy cheerful ray,
When the scattered sheep of Israel
Shall no longer go astray,
When hosannas,
When hosannas
With united voice they’ll cry.

2. Lord, how long wilt thou be angry?
Shall thy wrath forever burn?
Rise, redeem thine ancient people;
Their transgressions from them turn.
King of Israel,
King of Israel,
Come and set thy people free.

3. Oh, that soon thou wouldst to Jacob
Thy enliv’ning Spirit send!
Of their unbelief and misery
Make, O Lord, a speedy end.
Lord, Messiah!
Lord, Messiah!
Prince of Peace o’er Israel reign.
