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.

Representative Text

1. Let that day come, O Lord,
And other days pass by;
Night is far spent, and dawning tells
That Thou art drawing nigh.

2. A morning without clouds,
Clear shining after rain,
It shall awake the slumbering earth
To dewy youth again.

3. Watch ye, and work, and wait,
For Him your vigils keep,
Lest coming suddenly, He find
His servants sunk in sleep.

4. Watch, for the Bridegroom comes!
The hour one knoweth not;
But yet the stars are growing pale,
And He hath not forgot.

5. Watch till your eyes shall see
The glow first flush the sky:
Light of the world, arise and shine
In full-orbed radiancy!

6. Hasten Thy coming, Lord!
Dawn, O thou glorious day!
Then shall the fairest days of earth
Pass into shade away.
