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. Christ is coming, quickly coming,
In a cloud of flaming fire;
Some will rise in glorious brightness,
Others sink beneath His ire.
Oh, the glorious day of triumph,
For the soul that’s robed in white!
Saints will rise with shouts of victory,
Sinners sink to endless night.

2. Yes, we know that Christ is coming,
Soon we’ll hear the trumpet sound;
We can meet Him, hallelujah!
If in righteousness we’re found.
But, this sinful world of darkness,
In their sins, will sink to hell!
Oh, the awful cries of anguish!
Human tongues can never tell.

3. He is coming, quickly coming,
Every eye shall see Him then;
Oh, how sweet will be the meeting,
Where we’ll never part again.
Some will cry for rocks and mountains,
For to hide them from His face,
Those who now reject His mercy,
And will not accept His grace.

4. Christ is coming, quickly coming,
Hear the warning, ye that sleep,
Oh, prepare your soul to meet Him,
Or in anguish you will weep.
If He comes and you’re not ready,
You’ll be banished from His face,
If you now reject His mercy,
You’ll be lost without His grace.

5. Christ is coming, hallelujah!
Shout His praises, all ye saints,
For we know His smiles will greet us,
As we enter thro’ the gates.
We are ready, clad in whiteness,
All our sins are washed away;
With our blessèd, loving Savior,
We’ll abide in endless day.
