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.

Representative Text

1 Mingled together the wheat and the chaff,
Waiting their doom in the day of His ire;
Soon will the Mighty One winnow His threshing-floor,
Wheat for His garner, the chaff for the fire.

Burning the chaff in the day of His wrath,
Purging His floor with His fan in His hand;
Burning the chaff with unquenchable fire,
Who in that day will be able to stand?

2 Gath’ring the wheat for the garner of God,
Robing the victors in garments of light;
Never to sin again, never to sorrow more,
Standing forever approved in His sight. [Chorus]

3 Only the wicked shall be as the chaff;
Now is the time when dear sinners may turn;
Soon will they pass beyond mercy’s redeeming power,
And found among the chaff, like chaff must they burn. [Chorus]
