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,

1 When at last we see the King and His praise in glory sing,
What a day of victory that will be!
When we reach the other side where the faithful shall abide,
What a day of victory that will be!

Refrain:
What a day of victory, victory, victory!
What a day of victory that will be!
When hosannas glad we sing in the palace of the King,
What a day of victory that will be!

2 When we walk the streets of gold with the happy saints of old,
What a day of victory that will be!
When we join the angel-throng in the everlasting song,
What a day of victory that will be! [Refrain]

3 When with trials truly past we receive the crown at last,
What a day of victory that will be!
When before the King we stand in that everlasting land,
What a day of victory that will be! [Refrain]
