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. We are waiting, blessèd Savior,
We are watching for the hour
When in majesty descending,
Thou shalt come in mighty power;
Then the shadows will be lifted,
And the darkness rolled away,
And our eyes behold the splendor
Of the glorious crowning day.

2. We are waiting, blessèd Savior,
We are watching not in vain
For the cloud that bore Thee upward,
And will bring Thee back again.
Then, among Thy ransomed people,
We shall tread the shining way,
And our eyes behold the splendor
Of the glorious crowning day.

3. We are waiting, blessèd Savior,
For a union, heart to heart,
With our dear ones o’er the river,
Where we nevermore shall part;
Then our sorrows, in a moment,
Like a dream will pass away,
When our eyes behold the splendor
Of the glorious crowning day.
