Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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

Han kommer, vår Jesus

Representative Text

1 Han kommer, vår Jesus, välsignade tröst!
Den saliga dagen är nära,
Då vi skola höra hans ljufliga röst
Och skåda hans anlete klara.

Se, brudgummen kommer, upp, sofvande brud,
Tänd lampan och skynda att möta din Gud1
Så bjuder den manande rösten.

2 Minuterna ila, se, skuggorna fly,
Snart natte, den långa är ändad.
Där borta i fjärran ses morgonen dry,
Den eviga dagen snart randas. [Kör]

3 Ja, kom, Herre Jesus, kom snart, som du sagt,
Din ankomst med fröjd vi förbida!
Kom snart att förstöra all fiendens makt,
Att ensam på jorden regera!

Välkommen, välkommen, vår konung och Gud!
Välkommen, välkommen att taga din brud
Till dig i den eviga glädjen.
