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.

Representative Text

1 The sun will pale before Him,
The moon forget to shine,
When Christ, with hosts of angels,
Shall come in light divine.

O hail Him King of glory,
Who bringeth joy to men;
O earth, pour out hosannas
When Jesus comes again,
When Jesus comes again.

2 All grief shall turn to singing,
And pain forever flee,
The strife with sin be over,
And Satan’s captives free. [Refrain]

3 He’ll wipe all tears of sadness
With His own loving hand,
And take His waiting children
To sweet Immanuel’s land. [Refrain]
