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

1 I am watching, I am waiting
For the coming of the Lord,
For that coming in whose glory I shall share;
And the times are fast fulfilling
As recorded in His Word,
For His coming with the angels in the air.

Are you ready for His coming,
If He should come tonight,
Should the angel of the Lord sound the warning?
Oh, how sweet to meet our loved ones
In the many mansions bright,
Should the Savior call us home in the morning.

2 He may call me in the morning,
Or at noon the call may come,
He may call me in the darkness of the night;
Be it morning, noon, or evening,
I’ll be ready then to go,
There to walk with Him in garments pure and white. [Refrain]

3 God has given all this promise,
Full of grace and love divine,
Whosoever will believe on Christ the Son,
Shall be saved—oh, precious promise,
I am His, and He is mine,
And with Him I soon shall be, the victory won. [Refrain]
