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 Oh that day, that day of ire,
Told of prophet, when in fire
Shall a world dissolved expire!
2 Oh what trembling agony,
When His coming shall be nigh,
Who shall all things judge and try!
3 When the trumpet's thrilling tone,
through the tombs of ages gone,
Summons all before the throne.
4 Death and Nature stand aghast,
When all creatures, at the blast,
Rise to answer for the past.
5 Open then, the book shall lie,
All overwrite for every eye,
With a world's iniquity.
6 Then the Judge shall sit!--oh then
All that's hid shall be made plain,
Unrequited naught remain.
7 What then, wretched! shall I plead,
Who for me shall intercede,
When the righteous scarce is freed?
8 King of awful majesty!
Saving souls in mercy free;
Fount of pity, save Thou me!
9 Oh remember, Lord, I pray,
I the cause was of Thy way;
Do not lose me on that day!Source: The Book of Worship #451
