Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1. When the King shall come at the end of days,
All the saints of our God will be welcomed home;
’Round the throne they will gather to sing His praise,
And will never again from His palace roam.

Refrain
When the King shall come, when the King shall come,
Songs of joy will resound from the east and west,
And the saved will rejoice in that land of rest,
When the King shall come, when the King shall come;
There’ll be glory when the King shall come.

2. When the King shall come, will He welcome you?
Will He give you a place with the saints who reign?
Or when judged by the King in the last review,
Will you pass to the realms of eternal pain? [Refrain]

3. When the King shall come with a shout at dawn,
Earth and stars will dissolve in a fervent heat;
Jeweled crowns, from the monarchs of earth withdrawn,
Will be cast with hosannas at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]
