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.
1 He comes! he comes! the trumpet sound
And loudly rend the vast profound;
Earth, sea, and sky astonished shake:
To judgment come--ye dead awake!
2 Behold, behold what myriads rise!
See! see what glory fills the skies:
The dreadful volumes open shine;
O! mercy, Lord--for mercy's thine.
3 The hour, the awful hour is come,
Fixed, ever fixed is human doom;
The earth dissolves, heaven melts away:
O shield me, Saviour, in that day.
4 Lo! he ascends, to heaven ascends,
With his triumphant right-hand friends:
Time, death, and hell, expiring lie,
And goodness fills eternity.
5 The Father bless--the Son adore,
The Spirit praise for evermore:
Salvation's glorious work is done:
We welcome thee, great Three in One.
