Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 It may be He’ll come in the morning,
When the sunbeams are greeting the flowers;
And the heart is o’erflowing with gladness,
That thrills through life’s earlier hours.

Refrain:
And so I will strive to be ready,
For His coming, whene’er it may be,
For His welcoming smile of approval
Will be dearer than Heaven to me.
For His welcoming smile of approval
Will be dearer than Heaven to me.

2 It may be He’ll come in the noontime,
When the spirit is burdened with care;
And the souls that should always be waiting,
Forget for the Lord to prepare. [Refrain]

3 It may be He’ll come in the evening,
When the sun has gone down in the west,
When the toiler has ceased from his labor,
And song birds are seeking their nest. [Refrain]

4 It may be He’ll come at life’s midnight,
When the weary soul longs for its rest,
And the years, once so joyous and happy,
With seed-time and harvest have blest. [Refrain]
