Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 I shall be glad when Jesus comes,
Come when or how He may,
Glad when in majesty He comes
Who shall set all things right.

Refrain:
I shall be glad when Jesus comes,
Jesus who died for me;
Oh, to behold Him on His throne,
And all His glory see.

2 I shall be glad to know the end
Of selfish and sordid might,
Glad when in majesty He comes
Who shall set all things right. [Refrain]

3 I shall be glad when Christ hath wrought
His glorious will in me,
When to the likeness of His thought
I shall transfigured be. [Refrain]

4 Will you be glad when Jesus comes?
Oh, sinner, what can you say?
Are you prepared to welcome Him
And dwell with Christ for aye?

Refrain:
Will you be glad when Jesus comes,
Jesus of Calvary?
Would you behold Him on His throne,
And all His glory see?
