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. We wait for a great and glorious day,
As many as love the Lord,
When shadows shall flee, and clouds pass away,
And weeping no more be heard.

Refrain
O wonderful day, that soon may be here!
O beautiful hope, the pilgrim to cheer!
Thy coming we hail in tuneful accord,
Thou glorious day of Christ, our Lord.

2. In glory and pow’r our King shall appear,
And call to Himself His own;
No distance, nor death shall part them as here,
Nor sin, with its pains, be known. [Refrain]

3. For crosses we’ve born then crowns will be giv’n,
For tempests, eternal calm;
For pathway of thorns, rich mansions in Heav’n,
For warfare, the victor’s palm. [Refrain]

4. We know not the day, we know not the hour,
When sounds the last trump so clear;
But loud rings a cry from truth’s lofty tower,
The day of the Lord is near. [Refrain]
