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.

1. Upheld by hope—a glorious hope
As days and years roll by;
The coming of our Lord and king
Is surely drawing nigh.

2. Upheld by hope all toil is sweet
With this glad thought in view,
The Master may appear tonight
To call His servants true.

3. Upheld by hope—that wondrous hope,
That I shall see His face,
And to His likeness be conformed
When I have run the race.

4. Upheld by hope in darkest days
Faith can the light descry:
The deepening glory in the east
Proclaims deliverance nigh!

5. Upheld by hope, Belovèd one,
I hear the Bridegroom say,
Awake! arise! go forth to meet
My chariot on its way.

6. Upheld by hope, how glad the heart!
My soul is on the wing!
E’en now His hand is on the door
He comes—my glorious king!
