Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 O what a wonderful day that will be
When Jesus descends to the air;
Saints who have died, with the living shall be
All gathered to be with Him there.

Refrain:
Soon shall we see Him, the Saviour we love,
When He descends from the mansions above;
And with the King in His glory we’ll reign,
For He is coming, year, coming again.

2 They shall be changed and be like Him for aye,
When He returns for His own;
O what a glorious meeting that day,
With Jesus and those we have known! [Refrain]

3 Death will be ended and sorrow shall flee,
The darkness of sin will be past;
All the redeemed their Redeemer shall see,
And enter His glory at last. [Refrain]
