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.
Harry Plantinga

20. The Judgment Day

1 Are you living for today,
With the future far away,
Knowing not that ere the night
Death may come and claim His right?
Then, I bid you stop and think
Ere you reach the awful bring,
For ‘twill then be all too late,
To avoid your certain fate!

Refrain:
Are you ready for the judgment day?
Are you ready for the judgment day?
Have you pardon full and free
Through the Saviour slain for thee?
Are you ready for the judgment day?

2 Have you turned away the Light,
Sought the darkness and the night,
Do you tread in error’s way,
And avoid the Saviour’s way?
Oh, beware! beware, I pray,
And the voice of God obey,
For to turn away the Light
Is to dwell in endless night. [Refrain]

3 Have you lost the sense of sin,
Silenced Conscience’s voice within,
Placed the judgment far away,
Fought the light and shunned the day?
You will meet in sin or grace,
Meet the Saviour face to face;
‘Tis for you the question when?
You must meet Him now or then. [Refrain]

4 Is it better then to sin
Than to have His peace within?
For the Saviour came to God,
Bending low beneath the rod—
Died for guilty sinners lost,
Paid the debt at fearful cost;
Oh, then come! no longer wait,
Ere forever ‘tis too late! [Refrain]
