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.

If we enter into glory

Representative Text

1 If we enter into glory
At the resurrection light,
And in triumph sing the story
Of the love that banished night,
Shall we murmur at the sleeping
Till that great resplendent day?
Will it be a cause for weeping
When our tears are wiped away?

Let us wait for Christ from heaven,
Let us wait for Christ from heaven,
Let us wait for Christ from heaven,
Till the resurrection morn.

2 When we see the saints all beaming
In their crowns and robes of white,
And our loved ones in the gleaming,
With their forms so pure and bright,
When we meet beyond the sighing,
In the home beyond the gloom,
Shall we grieve because of lying
In the dark and silent tomb? [Chorus]

3 If we see the harvest glowing
In the grand eternal rays,
And then gladly reap from sowing
In these tears thro' sorrow's days,
Shall we then be heard repining,
Tho' the seed in earth remain?
In that morning's splendid shining,
It will wave in golden grain. [Chorus]

4 Let us wait for Christ from heaven,
As the church in days of old;
Then to us will crowns be given,
We will walk the streets of gold.
It will be no cause of sadness
That we parted when we died,
We shall be in perfect gladness,
With the Psalmist satisfied. [Chorus]
