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 Must I in judgment stand?
Before my Lord appear;
Shall I appear at his right hand?
Or sentenc'd to despair.
2 Will then my Saviour say:
Come join the heav'nly hosts?
Or must I then be drove away,
To the infernal coasts?
3 O what will be my state,
When I from hence shall flee?
O matters of the greatest weight,
To launch eternity!
4 It strikes an awful gloom,
Far more than I can tell:
When I think on the life to come,
And where I am to dwell.
5 To hear the trumpet sound,
And see the flaming skies,
And my great Judge in glory crown'd,
What fears will then arise!
6 O how shall I appear,
In that tremendious day?
When I my Judge's voice shall hear:
Say, come, or go away.
7 O Saviour hear my pray'r;
Such witness grant to me:
Make me assur'd, when I appear,
That I shall go with thee.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCXXXII
