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.
Harry Plantinga


Representative Text

1 When he cometh, when he cometh
to make up his jewels,
all his jewels, precious jewels,
his loved and his own.

Like the stars of the morning,
his bright crown adorning,
they shall shine in their beauty,
bright gems for his crown.

2 He will gather, he will gather
the gems for his kingdom,
all the pure ones, all the bright ones,
his loved and his own. [Refrain]

3 Little children, little children
who love their Redeemer,
are the jewels, precious jewels,
his loved and his own. [Refrain]
