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.

1 O I wonder when Jesus is coming again,
His waiting believers to bless;
And gather to Heaven His faithful ones, then,
And give them sweet heavenly rest?

O, Jesus is coming again!
O, Jesus is coming again!
O brother, rejoice! for the promise is sure,
Yes, Jesus is coming again.

2 O when will the angels their shouting begin,
When Jesus our Savior will come,
To conquer forever the kingdom of sin,
And take all His chosen ones home? [Refrain]

3 Many loved ones will meet us and cheer our glad souls,
Our joys will be full then, I know;
Hallelujahs will ring when we enter the goal,
O Christian, be ready to go! [Refrain]

4 O sinner, delay not, the time is too near,
It may be e’en now at your door;
O come to the Savior, there’s nothing to fear,
While Jesus is walking before! [Refrain]
