During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

The King Will Come at Age's End

The King will come at age's end

Author: Laurie F. Gauger
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 The King will come at age’s end,
The trumpets trill, the heavens rend,
Unveiling new Jerusalem. Alleluia!

2 The book of life will name its names,
Each bought by cross’s bitter pain,
Each inked in blood and sealed in flame. Alleluia!

3 All-glorious on his gleaming throne,
The King will claim his saints, his own,
And with them dwell and make a home. Alleluia!

4 And nights of tears, though late and long,
Will disappear in splendid dawn,
And deeps of death will all be gone. Alleluia!

5 Amen, amen! Lord Jesus, come!
My Savior fair, come bear me home.
For you are King of kings alone! Alleluia!
