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

60. Judgment Day

1 The judgment day is coming, coming, coming,
The judgment day is coming;
Oh, that great day.

Chorus:
Let us take the wings of the morning
And fly away to Jesus;
Let us take the wings of the morning
And sound the jubilee.

2 I heard the trumpet sounding, sounding, sounding,
I heard the trumpet sounding,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

3 I saw the Judge descending, descending, descending,
I saw the Judge descending,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

4 I saw the dead arising, arising, arising,
I saw the dead arising,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

5 I heard the thunder rolling, rolling, rolling,
I heard the thunder rolling,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

6 I saw the lightning blazing, blazing, blazing,
I saw the lightning blazing,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

7 I heard the wicked wailing, wailing, wailing,
I heard the wicked wailing,
On that great day.

Chorus:
For they took not the wings of the morning
Nor flew away to Jesus;
For they took not the wings of the morning
Nor sang the jubilee.

8 I heard the righteous shouting, shouting, shouting,
I heard the righteous shouting,
On that great day.

Chorus:
For they took the wings of the morning
And flew away to Jesus;
For they took the wings of the morning,
And sang the jubilee.
