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 Watch for the Master’s coming,
Oh, watch and wait;
Your lamp keep trimmed and burning,
Oh, watch and wait.

Oh, watch and wait,
Don’t be too late;
Watch for the Master’s coming,
Oh, watch and wait.

2 Watch for the Master’s coming,
He’s at the door;
Time now is fast declining,
’Twill soon be o’er. [Refrain]

3 Watch for the Master’s coming,
Oh, ready be;
Soon in the clouds appearing
Jesus we’ll see. [Refrain]

4 Watch and be ready, waiting
For Christ to come;
Let every soul be hast’ning
To gather home. [Refrain]
