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

1 The judgment day is coming,
Oh, be ready when the trumpet calls,
To stand before the Master,
Oh, be ready when the trumpet calls.

Oh, be ready!
Oh, be ready!
Oh, be ready when the Master calls;
Oh, be ready!
Oh, be ready!
Oh, be ready when the Master calls!

2 Ye who reject salvation,
Oh, be ready when the trumpet calls,
For you was Jesus smitten,
Oh, be ready when the trumpet calls. [Chorus]

3 Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,
Oh, be ready when the trumpet calls,
Will you not haste to meet Him?
Oh, be ready when the trumpet calls. [Chorus]

Oh, be ready when the trumpet calls;
Come make your peace with Jesus,
Oh, be ready when the trumpet calls. [Chorus]
