Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. Rejoice, ye saints! the time draws near
When Christ will in the clouds appear,
And for His people call.

Refrain
Trim your lamps, and be ready,
Trim your lamps, and be ready,
Trim your lamps, and be ready
For the midnight cry.
For the midnight cry,
For the midnight cry,
Trim your lamps and be ready,
For the midnight cry.

2. The trumpet sounds, the thunders roll;
The heavens passing as a scroll;
The earth will burn with fire. [Refrain]

3. Poor sinners then on earth will cry,
While lightnings flash from out the sky,
O mountains, on us fall! [Refrain]

4. Come, brethren all, and let us try
To warn poor sinners, and to cry,
Behold, the Bridegroom comes! [Refrain]
