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

Representative Text

1 How bright that blessed hope!
Jesus will come!
Let us our heads lift up,
Jesus will come!
Morning so bright and clear,
Mansions of God appear,
Sin shall not enter there,
Jesus will come!

2 Him every eye shall see,
Jesus will come!
Bright will the glory be,
Jesus will come!
Soon shall the trumpet speak,
Each sleeping saint awake,
And the glad morning break,
Jesus will come!

3 Full of this blessed hope!
Jesus will come!
Let us the cross take up,
Jesus will come!
Happy, reproach to bear,
Shame, for his sake, to share,
Since we our crown shall wear,
Jesus will come!
