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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

O how I long to see that day

Full Text

1. O how I long to see that day
When the redeemed shall come
To Zion, clad in white array
Their blissful, happy home.

O bear me on, bear me on
To Mount Zion;
O bear me on to that city of love
Where saints shall ever dwell.

2. I'll hear the alleluias roll
From the unnumbered throng,
And with a heaven-enraptured soul
I'll join redemption's song. [Chorus]

3. All hail! the morn of glory's nigh
The pilgrim longs to see
That dries the tear from every eye
Creation's jubilee. [Chorus]
