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 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]
