We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

O how I long with Christ to be

O how I long with Christ to be

Tune: ABRIDGE (Smith)
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O how I long with Christ to be,
And in his presence rest!
He draws my soul most wondrously;
I to his bosom haste.

2 Me for thy coming, Lord, prepare;
Grant I may ready be
Whene'er thou comest, without fear
To meet and welcome thee.

3 Meanwhile may I in spirit view
Thy sufferings, cross, and death;
These to my heart be daily new,
While thou shalt give me breath.

4 Thus will my wants be well supplied,
Thus will my soul with grace
Abundantly be satisfied,
And kept in heavenly peace.
