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,
Harry Plantinga

140. The Last Great Day

1 The earth shall melt with fervent heat,
The heavens pass away,
And all mankind their doom shall meet,
In that last great day.

Refrain:
Oh, that last great day is coming very soon,
’Tis the judgment day and the lost shall weep;
’Tis the crowning day, and the saints shall greet,
In that last great day.

2 The trump will sound, the Lord return,
And time no longer be,
The world in judgment flames consume,
In that last great day. [Refrain]

3 So all who make this world their God,
Can here no longer stay;
Their fondest hopes will all have fled,
In that last great day. [Refrain]

4 The quick and dead o’er land and sea
Will leave their mortal clay,
And put on immortality,
In that last great day. [Refrain]

5 The church of God no more shall need
This poor terrestrial home,
For she shall dwell with Christ, her head,
At the great white throne. [Refrain]
