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

The judgment day is drawing near

Representative Text

1 The judgment day is drawing near,
That great day of the Lord;
The summons all mankind shall hear,
That great day of the Lord.
All pomp and pride and vaunted power,
All empires, thrones of earthly dower,
Shall perish in that awful hour,
That great day of the Lord.

Refrain:
That great day is coming,
That dark day is coming,
That dread day is coming,
That great day of the Lord.

2 How shall we meet that dreadful day,
That great day of the Lord?
When Heav’n and earth shall flee away,
That great day of the Lord;
What power can shield the guilty soul,
All scarred and stained by sin’s control,
While thunderings of God’s justice roll?
That great day of the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Christ is a refuge for your soul,
That great day of the Lord;
Seek now release from sin’s control,
That great day of the Lord;
O fly into His pierced embrace,
And be a sinner saved by grace;
With joy you’ll then behold His face,
That great day of the Lord. [Refrain]
