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 the King shall come to Zion,
When He dwells on earth again,
With a rod of peace and blessing
Shall resound from shore to shore.
There shall be no pain nor crying,
He shall wipe all tears away;
Ev’ry heart shall thrill with gladness
In that great and glorious day.

Shout aloud the joyful strain,
Sing it o’er and o’er again,
We shall be with Him forever
When the King shall come again.

2 Ev’ry soul shall bow before Him,
And His holy name adore;
Happy songs of praise and blessing
Shall resound from shore to shore.
Then the light of God’s own glory
Shall dispel the night of sin,
And a day of joy and gladness
On the earth shall then begin. [Refrain]

3 When the King shall come to Zion,
When He reigns upon His throne,
He will call us His beloved,
He will claim us for His own.
We shall dwell within His kingdom,
Which for us He doth prepare;
We shall reign with Him forever,
And His glory we shall share. [Refrain]
