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.
1. The testing time is very near,
When at Christ’s bar we must appear;
Must appear, must appear,
When at Christ’s bar we must appear.
Oh, my soul, art thou ready to appear
At the bar, when the judgment day is here?
With no counsel at thy side,
When the book is opened wide,
Oh, my soul, art thou ready to appear?
2. Our secret thoughts will then be known,
We cannot then for sin atone;
Sin atone, sin atone,
We cannot then for sin atone. [Refrain
3. We then may call, but all in vain,
Too late! our guilt will still remain;
Still remain, still remain,
Too late! our guilt will still remain. [Refrain]
4. O sinner, come, e’er Heaven’s door
Is closed, to open nevermore;
Is closed, to open nevermore. [Refrain]
5. Then when the testing time doth come
You’ll find in Heav’n sweet rest and home;
Rest and home, rest and home,
You’ll find in Heav’n sweet rest and home. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #6538
