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

Representative Text

1 I’ll wait to be honored above,
What wondrous honor ’twill be,
When Jesus because of His love,
Puts a crown of His glory on me!
I’ll wait to be honored above,
Where loved ones are watching for me,
And where, with the angels of God,
The face of my Father I’ll see.

I’ll wait, O, I’ll wait,
Yes, I’ll wait to be honored above.
I’ll wait, O, I’ll wait,
Yes, I’ll wait to be honored above.

2 I’ll wait to be honored above;
’Tis Jesus invites me to come,
And only because of His love,
The Savior will welcome me home;
And soon I’ll be honored above.
An heir of my God and my king,
Joint heir with the Son of His love,
Whose praises in Heaven I’ll sing. [Refrain]
