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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1.
I beheld, and lo a great multitude, which no man could number,
Thousands of thousands, and ten times thousands,
(Repeat previous line twice).
207
Stood before the Lamb, and they had palms in their hands,
And they cease not day nor night, saying,
Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,
Which was, and is, and is to come,
(Repeat previous line).
208
And I heard a mighty angel flying through the midst of heaven,
Crying with a loud voice, woe, woe, woe, woe,
Be unto the earth by reason of the trumpet which is yet to sound.
209
And when the last trumpet sounded, the great men an nobles,
Rich men and poor, bond and free, gathered themselves together,
And cried to the rocks and mountains to fall upon them,
And hide them from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne,
For the great day of the Lord is come, and who shall be able to stand?
And who shall be able to stand?
