We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

What Will You Do?

Representative Text

1 Someday, maybe soon, the Lord Jesus may come
And gather His ransomed ones home;
My bother, to Him are you faithful and true?
If not, then, oh what will you do?

What will you do, what will you do?
What will you do in the judgment day?
No Christ to plead, what can you say?
Oh what will you do in the judgment day?

2 He'll come in the clouds, and all eyes shall behold
The King in His beauty untold;
But, sinner, what hope of His glory have you?
Unsaved, then, oh, what will you do? [Refrain]

3 The trumpet shall sound the glad day of the Lord,
When all shall arise at His word;
The blood-washed with Him heaven's gate will pass through;
But what in the end will you do? [Refrain]

4 O sinner, repent; now to God turn your face
In this blessed day of free grace;
It may now seem pleasant sin's path to pursue,
But what in the end will you do? [Refrain]
