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

1 The day is fast approaching,
By prophets long foretold,
When all shall dwell together,
One Shepherd, and one fold.

2 When every senseless idol
Shall to the bats be thrown,
And every prayer be offered
To God in Christ alone.

3 When Jew and Gentile meeting
From many a distant shore
Shall, round one altar kneeling,
One common Lord adore.

4 When all that now divides us
Shall wholly pass away,
Like shadows of the morning,
Before the blaze of day.

5 When war shall be no longer,
And strife and tumult cease,
And earth become the kingdom
Of Christ, the Prince of Peace.

6 The long expected dawning
Breaks with its cheering ray;
Already morning brightens,
And shadows flee away.

7 O blessèd day of triumph,
That cheers the watchers on,
To pray, and hope, and labor,
Till the dark night be gone.
