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

Sinners, take the friendly warning

Sinners, take the friendly warning

Published in 25 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Sinners, take the friendly warning;
Soon that awful day shall break,
And the trumpet, with its dawning,
All the slumbering millions wake.

2 See assembled every nation!--
Loftly cities, temples, towers,
Wrapt in dreadful conflagration,
Earth and sea the flame devours.

3 Ye who to the world dissemble,
While you practice deeds of night,
Sinners, now behold and tremble;
All your crimes are brought to light.

4 Ye who now, conviction stifling,
Waste your time, the loss deplore;
Hear the angel--cease your trifling--
Time, he cries, shall be no more.

5 Pause and hear the voice of reason,
Catch the moments as they fly;
You who lose the present season,
You must all find time to die.
