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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. In the East is morning breaking,
Faintly glimmering from afar;
Gladdening eyes that wait the rising
Of the Bright and Morning Star;
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Wilt Thou soon to us appear?

2. Oh! we praise Thee for Thy coming
Once in lowliness and pain
To redeem from sin’s pollution,
Freeing us from Satan’s chain;
But how gladly! But how gladly!
We will see Thee come again.

3. By Thy Holy Spirit’s teaching,
Calvary’s healing streams we know;
Blood to pardon—purifying
Sin-stained hearts made white as snow;
But Thy fullness! But Thy fullness,
Thou wilt in Thy glory show.

4. Thou art coming, blessèd Master;
Days and moments speed apace,
Soon will cease earth’s day of service,
Soon we’ll see Thee face to face;
Are we ready, are we ready
For that day of crowning grace?

5. Vainly human thought can picture
What that day to us will be;
Who have welcomed full salvation,
Let Thee cleanse and sanctify;
Then Thy beauty, then Thy beauty
Will each longing satisfy.
