During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

The day of the Lord

Hark! from the sky, the trump proclaims

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Hark! from the sky, the trump proclaims,
Jesus the Judge approaching nigh!
See, the creation wrapped in flames,
First kindled by his vengeful eye!

2 when thus the mountains melt like wax;
When earth, and air, and sea, shall burn:
When all the frame of nature shakes;
Poor sinner, whither wilt thou turn?

3 The puny works which feeble men
Now boast, or covet, or admire;
Their pomp, and arts, and treasures, then
Shall perish in one common fire.

4 Lord, fix our hearts and hopes above!
Since all below to ruin tends;
Here may we trust, obey and love,
And there be found amongst thy friends.
