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.

Representative Text

1 There will be a great reunion,
When the trump of God shall sound,
In the final judgment day.
Every nation shall be gathered
From the sea and from the land,
In the final judgment day.

Refrain:
We shall hear the signal trumpet,
In the final judgment day;
It shall wake the sleeping nations,
In the final judgment day.

2 When death’s prison bars are broken,
All the sleeping dead shall rise,
In the final judgment day.
Then we’ll see the Lord descending
In His glory from the skies,
In the final judgment day. [Refrain]

3 There’ll be shouting, there’ll be singing
When the saints shall all arise,
In the final judgment day.
Then together we will hail Him
King Immanuel in the skies,
In the final judgment day. [Refrain]

4 There will be a great reunion,
Such as earth has never known,
In the final judgment day.
When we meet with precious loved ones
’Round the Father’s great white throne,
In the final judgment day. [Refrain]
