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 What a wonderful change when our Lord shall appear,
Oh, how precious the tho’t that the time is so near!
When the dead shall awake in His likeness sublime,
And the living be changed in a moment of time!

What a wonderful change! what a wonderful change
When we shall look on His glorious face!
What a wonderful change! what a wonderful change
When we shall see His face!

2 When His bright shining presence shall end the dark night,
All our sorrow shall turn to immortal delight;
Then our crosses for crowns we’ll exchange at His feet,
And our loneliness change for reunion so sweet! [Refrain]

3 Ev’ry longing shall meet satisfaction at length,
All our weakness be changed into infinite strength;
Then our imperfect work, thro’ His mercy and grace,
Shall be free from all fault, when we see His dear face! [Refrain]

4 What a wonderful change when He welcomes His bride,
And will grant us a place in His throne, by His side;
Oh, how blessed the goal at the end of the race,
To behold thro’ the ages that beautiful face! [Refrain]
