Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

If today, amid the storms of life

Full Text

1. If today, amid the storms of life that wildly beat around us,
We the rainbow of our blessèd Lord can see,
And rejoice to hear Him calling, as when first the Shepherd found us,
When we stand in His presence, what will it be?

Refrain
What will it be? What will it be?
With the Lord to reign thro’ all eternity!
On that blissful shore, saved forevermore,
As we stand in His presence, what will it be?

2. If His love so freely shed abroad can fill our hearts with glory,
If the sweetest song of earth is: Come to Me;
If such blessing it affords us just to tell the precious story,
When we stand in His presence, what will it be? [Refrain]

3. If our faith in Him can fill our hearts with joy to overflowing,
And the Lord, unseen, to us so dear can be;
If we love Him while in tears and pain for harvest we are sowing,
When we stand in His presence, what will it be? [Refrain]

4. If when those we love are taken from us we can still adore Him,
And to Him in that dark hour for comfort flee;
As we clasp their hands on yonder shore, to cast our crowns before Him,
When we stand in His presence, what will it be? [Refrain]
