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. 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]
