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, 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,

1 He will come, perhaps, at dawning
Of some sunny, summer’s day;
Fairer than the tints of morning,
Glory shall attend His way.

O my soul, go forth to greet Him,
Greet Him on His glorious way;
O my feet, go out to meet Him,
When He cometh that glad day.

2 Or, when sultry noon is beaming,
He, perchance, will come again;
O’er His path a glory streaming,
Fairest of the sons of men. [Refrain]

3 When the shades of night are falling,
It may be, my Lord will come;
I may hear Him sweetly calling,
Calling me to share His home. [Refrain]
