We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
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?
