Hymnary Friends,

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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

The Lord is coming, let this be

Representative Text

1. The Lord is coming, let this be
The herald note of jubilee;
And when we meet and when we part
The salutation from the heart.

Refrain
The Lord is coming, let this be
The herald note of jubilee,
The herald note of jubilee.

2. The Lord is coming! sound it forth
From east to west, from south to north;
Speed on! speed on the tidings glad,
That none who love Him may be sad. [Refrain]

3. The Lord is coming, swift and sure
And all His judgments shall endure;
And none can hope t’escape His wrath,
Who walk not in the narrow path. [Refrain]

4. The earth, with her ten thousand wrongs
Will soon be tuned in nobler songs;
Our praise shall then, in realms of light,
With all His universe unite. [Refrain]
