Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 We shall be like Him, O wonderful thought!
Blessèd the hope the assurance hath wrought:
Changed from the sorrow and trials of years,
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears.

Refrain:
We shall be like Him,
Oh, how the promise cheers!
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears.

2 Eye hath not seen, nor hath ear ever heard
What we shall be but, a voice from His word
Whispers a message that charms all our fears,
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears. [Refrain]

3 Why, then, repine when the roadway is rough?
Are not His word and the promise enough?
Rainbows of love span the valley of tears,
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears. [Refrain]

4 We shall be like Him, the hope of the soul;
We shall be like Him, made perfectly whole;
Caught up with saints, as the firmament clears,
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears. [Refrain]
