Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1. Jesus, faithful to His Word,
shall with a shout descend;
All Heaven’s host their glorious Lord
shall pompously attend:
Christ shall come with dreadful noise,
lightnings swift, and thunders loud;
With the great archangel’s voice,
and with the trump of God.

2. First the dead in Christ shall rise;
then we that yet remain
Shall be caught up to the skies,
and see our Lord again:
We shall meet Him in the air,
all caught up to Heaven shall be,
Find, and love, and praise Him there,
to all eternity.

3. Who can tell the happiness
this glorious hope affords?
Joy unuttered we possess
in these reviving words;
Happy while on earth we breathe,
mightier bliss ordained to know,
Trampling down sin, hell, and death,
to the third heaven we go.
