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.

He comes! he comes! the trumpet sound

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
