1 When shall I see the day
That ends my woes?
When shall I vict’ry gain
O’er all my foes?
When will the trumpet sound
That calls the exile home?
The grand Sabbatic year,
When will it come?

2 A crown of glory bright
By faith I see,
In yonder realms of light,
Prepared for me;
O, may I faithful prove,
And keep the prize in view,
And thro’ the storms of life
My way pursue.

3 Jesus, by Thou my Guide!
My steps attend;
O, keep me near Thy side;
Be Thou my Friend;
Be Thou my Shield and Sun,
My Saviour and my Guard,
And, when my work is done,
My great Reward.

4 O, how I long to see
That happy day,
When sorrow, sin, and pain
Shall flee away;
When all the heavenly tribes
Shall find their long-sought home:
The jubilee of heaven,—
When will it come?

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 >
