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

1 Jesus is coming,
The promise has been giv’n,
Jesus is coming,
To take us all to Heav’n;
Jesus is coming,
The advent draweth nigh;
Oh, how glorious,
That we may never die.

Refrain:
Jesus is coming,
Coming back again;
Jesus is coming,
Sing the sweet refrain;
Jesus is coming,
Coming to earth again;
Jesus is coming,
Coming back to reign.

2 Jesus is coming,
To those who long for Heav’n;
Jesus is coming
To those whose all is giv’n.
Jesus is coming!
Come quickly, Lord, we cry;
Oh, how glorious,
Thy portents we espy. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is coming,
To those whose hearts are riv’n;
Jesus is coming,
To those with all forgiv’n.
Jesus is coming!
Oh, let our tears be dry;
Oh, how glorious,
When we ascend on high. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is coming,
To see Him we have striv’n.
Jesus is coming,
To meet Him grace is giv’n.
Jesus is coming!
No longer breathe a sigh,
Oh, how glorious,
He cometh from on high. [Refrain]
