We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Heavy clouds are gathering fast

Heavy clouds are gathering fast

Representative Text

1 Heavy clouds are gathering fast,
Tokens of destruction sure;
Sinner, now before the blast,
Seek a shelter to secure.

2 Thousand voices from afar,
Warn thee of thy coming fate:
Careless sinner, now beware!
Haste thee, ere it be too late!

3 Crimes in every shape increase;
Judgments stalk throughout the land;
Signs are borne on every breeze,
That destruction is at hand.

4 Darker clouds will soon arise,
Louder still the thunders roar,
Fiercer lightnings pierce the skies,
But the sinner's day is o'er.
