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 tidal wave is coming, salvation full and free,
With shout and song it sweeps along like billows of the sea;
The jubilee of holiness will ring thro' earth and sky,
The dawn of grace draws on apace, 'tis coming by and by.

Coming by and by, Coming by and by,
A better day is dawning soon, He's coming by and by;
We'll wait that glorious moment when from out the op'ning sky,
Our Lord shall come to take us home—He's coming by and by.

2 "We're waiting, Lord, and longing, till Thou shalt come again,
To claim Thine own, and on Thy throne, in peace and love to reign;
We'll wait that glorious coming till from out the op'ning sky
Our Lord shall come to take us home, He's coming by and by. [Chorus]

3 There's cleansing offered freely to all who come today,
And trusting in the promises, will walk the narrow way;
For perfect peace in Him is found, and joys which ne'er shall die,
And when He comes we'll reign with Him, He's coming by and by. [Chorus]
