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.
Harry Plantinga

O longing soul, be not dismayed

Representative Text

1 O longing soul, be not dismayed,
Thou shalt see Jesus from on high;
E’en tho’ His coming be delayed,
He’s surely coming by and by.

We know He’s coming by and by;
We know He’s coming by and by;
In the clouds of His love,
He is coming from above,
We know He’s coming by and by.

2 The cloud that hides the Savior’s face,
And wraps the earth in darkest night,
Shall roll away, and in its place
Shall dawn a glorious morning light. [Refrain]

3 He’ll bring our loved ones back when He
Shall in His glory come again;
We’ll be with them eternally,
And with our Savior too shall reign. [Refrain]

4 Then watch and wait till He shall come,
For our redemption then shall be;
Then He’ll receive us in that home,
That home that lasts eternally. [Refrain]
