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

Our hope

Representative Text

1. Over the hills the trumpet is sounding,
Sounding the beautiful song,
Jesus is coming, soon he is coming,
Tho' he has tarried so long.
While we are hoping, watching, and waiting,
He is preparing a place;
Yes, he is coming, soon to receive us
In his dear loving embrace.

2. Wonders and signs all tell the glad story,
Jesus is coming again;
Coming to reign in honor and glory,
Waiting will not be in vain.
Over the hills the trumpet is sounding,
Valleys re-echo the strain,
Watchmen in Zion, tell the glad story,
Jesus is coming again.

3. Tho' he is pleading still with the Father,
Soon he is coming again;
Soon will his pleading cease and forever,
For he is coming to reign.
"Jesus, come quickly," still we are crying,
While the time seemeth so long;
Trusting the promise, still we are waiting,
Singing the beautiful song.
