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.
Harry Plantinga

The time of Jesus being at hand

The time of Jesus being at hand

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 The time of Jesus being at hand
To leave this world below;
Gave his Disciples this command:
This shall ye mind and do.

2 This blessed bread which I do break,
This cup, this blessed wine:
This bread and wine ye shall partake,
An ordinance divine.

3 This ordinance I do ordain,
To prove my sacred will;
This Institution shall contain
My pledges and my seal.

4 Take ye this bread and eat by faith,
And drink this cup likewise;
And by so doing shew my death,
And precious sacrifice.
