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.
1 When Jesus' time was fully come
To leave this world below;
Then he return'd to heav'n, his home!
Where he is worship'd now.
2 His work on earth is all complete:
His suff'rings have an end;
In heav'n he took his place and seat,
And reigns at God's right hand.
3 The Hosts of heaven praise his name,
And of his wonders sing;
Then let us join to do the same
And worship him our King.
4 To him, are endless praises due.
From all that live and move;
Yet men or angels cannot shew
The greatness of his love.
5 We shall more fully sing his praise:
When we get near his throne--
And love and thank him all our days,
For all that he has done.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LXXXVII
