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.

The glorious change

Representative Text

1. Soon shall our Saviour in glory appear,
Soon his sweet voice from above we shall hear;
When he shall speak what a change there will be!
From every burden we then shall be free.

Oh, what a change! glorious change!
Oh, what a glorious change!
We shall be changed when our Lord comes again;
Come then, Lord Jesus, come quickly, Amen.

2. Then in a moment a flash of the eye
We shall be changed and we never can die;
Then shall our bodies, so weak and so frail,
Over all sickness forever prevail. [Chorus]

3. No more gray hairs, for we'll never grow old;
Heartaches shall never be known we are told.
Forms that are blighted and wasting away
Changed and immortal shall never decay. [Chorus]

4. Oh, hallelujah, what joy fills the soul!
Peace shall be ours while the bright ages roll;
Changed to the image of Jesus our King
Satisfied then in his likeness we'll sing. [Chorus]
