Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Death and Eternity

Representative Text

1 Coming when the day is bright,
Coming in the silent night,
Coming at the morning light,
Coming, coming, death and eternity.

2 Coming to the gay and proud,
Coming with a snow-white shroud,
Coming to the gray head bowed,
Coming, coming, death and eternity.

3 Coming with unhindered sway,
Coming ev'ry fleeting day,
Coming to the young and gay,
Coming, coming, death and eternity.

4 Coming to the sinful one,
Coming when our life is done,
Gath'ring to the judgment throne,
Coming, coming, death and eternity.
