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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 There will dawn a glorious morning,
When the pearly gates unfold;
I shall see my home in glory,
Jasper walls and streets of gold.
I shall see those angel faces,
Hear their voices as they sing,
And rejoice when I awaken,
In the likeness of my King.

Refrain:
I shall be like Him,
And redemption’s song shall sing,
When I waken in His likeness,
In the likeness of my King.

2 O the greeting and rejoicing,
When the dear ones I shall meet;
Heart to heart in glad reunion,
We shall tread heav’n’s golden street.
Then my joy will know its fullness,
As the glad “hosannas” sing,
When I waken in His likeness,
In the likeness of my King. [Refrain]

3 But the face of Christ my Saviour,
I have longed so much to see,
Will be fairest of ten thousand,
Gathered ‘round the crystal sea.
O how sweet this smile of welcome,
When to Him my all I bring,
And rejoice when I awaken,
In the likeness of my King. [Refrain]
