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

Representative Text

1. Some sweet day my Lord will come,
Come to claim His own;
I shall meet Him face to face,
Before the Advent throne.

Refrain
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Like Him I shall be;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
For I shall see Him as He is!

2. Some sweet day this body frail,
In a moment’s space,
Shall be changed and upward caught,
And stand before His face. [Refrain]

3. Some sweet day my hand shall clasp
Those long gone before;
Press them to my heart with joy,
To part again no more. [Refrain]
