Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

If we enter into glory

Full 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?

Chorus:
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]
