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 If Jesus should come at this moment
To catch up with Him in the air
All those who love His appearing,
Forever to be with Him there,
How would He find you, I wonder—
Watching, waiting, faithful, true,
Dearly beloved, consider—
How would it be with you?

Refrain:
How would it be with you,
How would it be with you?
If called face to face now to meet Him,
How would it be with you?

2 If quickly to you came the summons
To stand in eternity now,
Where every tongue shall confess Him,
Before whom all nations must bow,
Would you be ready to meet Him,
In His blood be washed, made new?
Dearly beloved, consider—
How would it be with you? [Refrain]

3 If Jesus were standing among us
And carefully searching each heart,
Bidding the ransomed to enter,
And saying to others, depart;
Would you be placed at His right hand,
Or with those He never knew?
Dearly beloved, consider—
How would it be with you? [Refrain]
