Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 Fast breaks the morn, all glorious appearing,
Illumes the sky with brightening golden light;
Faint flashes glow, His coming ever nearing,
Lo! on the sky the morn dispels the night.

Refrain:
Soldiers of Christ! Soldiers of light!
Watch for His coming across the golden height;
Soldiers of Christ! Soldiers of light!
Watch for His coming across the golden height.

2 Soon shall the trumpet’s golden, awful sounding,
Wake sleepers all to meet the coming Host;
Hark! even now the hills are all resounding
With joyful sounds to those who love Him most. [Refrain]

3 Then, faithful hearts, watch on, nor ever sleeping,
Soon shall He come to greet His waiting bride;
O faithful souls! your loving watches keeping,
Lamps trimmed and burning, watch whate’er betide! [Refrain]
