Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please 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 team,

1
Lord Jesus, I am waiting
To meet You in the air;
Apart from Your soon advent
There is no other prayer.
My hope is Your returning,
Your nearness I can feel;
I feel Your ’biding presence
In spirit now so real.
2
Now in my deepest being
Your speaking I can hear;
Your plan revealed in secret
My thankful heart does cheer.
You are a moment nearer!
I sense Your coming face;
The day of grace now shorter
Soon Satan to displace.
3
Sever all cares that bind me
That I may be so free;
I’ll be with You transcendent;
Begone captivity!
From things permissive loose me,
Lax snares that in me grow,
Lest when You come to greet me,
I cannot freely go.
4
Each hour watching, ready,
This is my heart’s desire;
So not to miss that rapture,
My spirit set afire,
Lest by my slumber taking,
Not ready for Your call,
I miss Your face, unworthy
To leave this earthly ball.
5
Unto this heart speak freshly
A warning serious:
Why trade the kingdom’s glory
For things not glorious?
Love Him with heart o’erflowing,
His coming fully mind;
Turn loose at every moment
The earthly things you find.
6
Though fierce might be the fighting,
Vile spirits all around,
Fear not such threat; be ready
To leave this foreign ground.
Though darkness is increasing,
Redemption’s day is near;
Lift up your head, for surely
Our Lord will soon appear.
7
Lord, may I love You only,
Lord, be my only thought,
Rejecting this world’s bribing,
The One in heaven sought.
All earth’s attachments loosen,
Dear Lord, delay no more;
I long to greet Your coming,
The One whom I adore.
