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 our Saviour in his glory
With the angel host shall come,
When in clouds from heaven descending
He shall call his children home,
When before him shall be gathered
All the nations far and near,
What a shout of joy will greet him,
When the welcome words we hear:

Come, ye blessed of my Father,
Come, ye blessed of my Father,
Inherit the kingdom prepared for you
From the foundation of the word.

2 To the well of living water
If the thirsty we have led,
If the stranger we have sheltered,
And the hungry we have fed,
If a weary, fainting brother
We have tried to help and cheer,
Oh, the rest that we shall enter,
When the welcome words we hear: [Refrain]

3 If we give our lives to Jesus
And delight to do his will,
If we follow out his teaching,
And his great commands fulfil,
If our light is seen by others,
Like the noonday bright and clear,
What a joyful, joyful meeting,
When the welcome words we hear: [Refrain]
