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, 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

1 After awhile the trump will sound,
To wake the nations underground,
After awhile, after awhile;
After awhile the Lord will come
To call His faithful children home,
After awhile, after awhile.

2 After awhile we all shall stand,
For recompense at God’s right hand,
After awhile, after awhile;
Accepted of the Lord we’ll be,
To reign with Him eternally,
After awhile, after awhile.

3 Then from His presence will be sent,
Those who of sin did not repent,
After awhile, after awhile;
For such in Heav’n there is no room,
Banished from God will be their doom,
After awhile, after awhile.
