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.

O that day, that day of ire

O that day, that day of ire

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

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!
