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.

Full Text

1 The night is now far spent
And day comes on apace;
The veil will soon be rent,
That hides the Savior’s face;
The clouds that now obstruct our sight
Will all be quickly put to flight.

2 Ye saints, lift up your heads,
Salvation draweth nigh;
See where the morning spreads
Its radiance through the sky;
Oh, let the sight your spirits cheer;
The Lord Himself will soon appear.

3 Though men your hope deride,
Nor will themselves believe;
Yet in His word confide,
Who never can deceive;
When Heav’n and earth shall pass away,
The saints shall see a glorious day.

4 For you the Lord intends
A bright abode on high;
The place where sorrow ends,
And naught is known but joy;
With such a hope, ye saints, rejoice;
We soon shall hear th’ archangel’s voice.
