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. I know not how soon God will call me,
To leave all these scenes here below;
Here trials and troubles befall me,
I care not how soon I may go.
I’m glad that I know not the coming
Of Jesus, my Master, my joy;
But soon He will take me from roaming,
To rest where no fears can annoy.
2. Tonight the death angel may whisper
The summons for me to come home;
And leave here a brother or sister,
My sudden departure to mourn. [Refrain]
3. I know not how soon I’ll be singing
Sweet songs with the ransomed up there;
For ever the anthems are ringing,
O’er Heaven’s dear landscape so fair. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #2862
