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 Until He come,—for sure the Master cometh,—
Until He come my heart shall watch and yearn
With eager love for Him my soul so loveth,
My Lord and King, who said, “I will return.”

2 Until He come! For surely comes the dawning
Of brightest day this world has ever known,
When light of heaven’s own eternal morning
Illumines earth with glory from the throne.

3 Until He come! Then flee all fear and sadness,
Lost, ever lost in depths of love divine!
Then ne’er a tear but born of heart’s deep gladness
That I am His, that He the King is mine!

4 Until He come! Then rapture overflowing
When from the skies He comes His own to claim!
O day of days, the Saviour’s splendors showing,
The glory of His all-excelling name!
