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, 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. O child of God, there is for thee
A hope that shines amid the gloom,
A gladsome hope that thou shalt see
Thy Lord, for He will surely come.

He’ll come, yes, He’ll come and tarry not;
He’ll come, yes, He’ll come and tarry not;
He’ll come, He’ll come,
He’ll come and tarry not.

2. When in this world His hands had made,
No room was found for Jesus then;
The mountainside was oft His bed;
Now, glorified, He comes again.

3. Exalted now to Heaven’s throne,
The Savior there of sinful men;
His loving heart yearns o’er His own,
And for them He will come again.

4. O child of God, thy lot may be
Oft mixed with trial, grief and pain;
Look up, He’ll surely come for thee;
He says, I’ll quickly come again.

5. Then joy unmingled will be thine,
Earth’s tears and trials all forgot;
So cheer thy heart, no more repine,
His word is sure: He’ll tarry not.
