Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O Jesus, my Jesus, is coming some day,
The heavens will open, O why bid Him stay?
His bride hath made ready, her garments are white,
Arrayed in fine linen so pure and so bright.

O glory! He’s coming, yes coming some day,
To gather His loved ones and take them away;
He’s coming, He’s coming, He’s coming some day,
My Savior is coming for me.

2 Thrice blessed are ye who are bidden to feast,
When Jesus shall name you a king and a priest,;
At that feast anew with His bride He’ll reveal,
The new wine of heaven, the marriage to seal. [Refrain]

3 If this hope you’ve treasured, like Him thou shalt be,
All pure and all holy, yes, even as He;
An heir to a kingdom, a crown and a throne,
With riches in glory forever thine own. [Refrain]

4 O friends, are you ready this moment to stand,
With boldness before Him a sanctified band?
The blood is your plea, are you happy and free,
Made white in the fountain ‘neath Calvary’s tree? [Refrain]
