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 O someday, with trump of God and a shout,
And sound of the archangel's voice,
From Heaven the Lord Himself shall descend:
So let us be glad and rejoice.

Then oh, what delight when faith shall be sight
And Jesus comes back for His own;
Caught up in the air, to be with Him there,
O quickly, Lord Jesus, so come!

2 On that day the dead in Christ shall rise first,
And those of His own who remain
Together with Him shall meet in the clouds
Without any dying or pain. [Chorus]

3 Then sorrow we not as those without hope,
But comfort ourselves with this word,
That all those in Him, when He shall return,
Forever shall be with the Lord. [Chorus]
