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.

1. O would you be numbered as one of His fold?
Be spotless within;
Be watching and waiting that sight to behold,
He’s coming again!

Refrain
He’s coming again!
He’s coming again!
Be watching and waiting that sight to behold;
He’s coming again!

2. Not known is the moment when He shall appear,
To gather them in;
The souls who have followed Him faithfully here;
He’s coming again! [Refrain]

3. The voice of His Spirit says, ready, then be,
O will you begin?
If peace in His presence you hope then to see;
He’s coming again! [Refrain]

4. Risk not, an acceptance of Him in that day,
All covered with sin,
Be robed and all ready, the Spirit doth say,
He’s coming again! [Refrain]
