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

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]
