We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

When shall I see the day

Representative Text

1 When shall I see the day
That ends my woes?
When shall I victory gain
O'er all my foes?

2 When the trumpet sound,
That calls me home?
The grand, sabbatic year,
When will it come?

3 In yonder realms of light,
By faith I see
A crown of glory bright,
Prepared for me.

4 O may I soon behold
That happy day,
When sorrow, sin, and pain
Shall flee away!

5 O may I ever keep
The prize in view,
And through the storms of life
My way pursue!

6 Jesus, be thou my guide,
My steps attend;
O keep me near thy side;
Be thou my friend.

7 Be thou my shield and sun,
Be thou my guard;
And, when my work is done,
My great reward.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
