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 Should the Saviour come to call me,
In the early morning light;
Should the hand of death enthrall me
In the night.
When I hear the voice that’s saying
“Blessed child of earth come home,”
I shall know that Jesus bids me
In that day.

In that day,
In that day,
I shall know that Jesus bids me
In that day,
In that day
In that day,
I shall know that Jesus bids me
In that day.

2 Though the time comes flashing o’er me,
In the busy hours of day;
And the path which dark before me
Flees away.
When my Saviour sends His summons
“Come before My throne of grace,”
I shall know the voice that calls me
In that day. [Refrain]

3 When the sunshine bright and glowing,
Sinks beneath the western hill,
When the hours of night are growing
Calm and still.
When my summons comes at midnight,
“Come to Me, for thou art Mine,”
I shall know the voice of Jesus
In that day. [Refrain]
