We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

When as Jehovah did return

Representative Text

1 When as Jehovah did return
Sions captivity
At that time unto them that dream,
Compared might we be.
2 Then was our mouth with laughter fill'd,
With singing fill'd our tongue.
The Lord hath done great things for them
They said th' heathen among.

3 The Lord hath done great things for us,
Whereof we joyful be.
4 O Lord, like as the southern streams
Turn our captivity.
5 Who sow in tears shall reap in joy:
6 Who going go and mourn,
Bearing choice feed, shall sure with joy
Bringing their sheaves return.
