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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 O morn of bliss eternal,
What will our rapture be,
When clothed in power and glory,
Our blessed Lord we see.

Refrain:
When He is clouds descending
Shall come to claim His own
And gather all, both great and small,
Around His Father’s throne.

2 O morn of bliss eternal,
When all His saints shall rise,
With shouts of holy transport,
To meet Him in the skies. [Refrain]

3 We cannot tell the moment
When we shall hear His voice;
But, oh, if we are ready,
How will our hearts rejoice! [Refrain]
