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.

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 What if the Master should come tonight?
Would you be ready to go?
Can you now say you have done the right,
Or must you with shame say no?

Refrain:
What if the Master should come?
What if the Master should come?
Will you be ready, waiting to go?
Oh, what if the Master should come?

2 What if the Master should come tonight?
Would you not tremble with fears?
Or could you welcome that blissful sight,
Without bitter sighs or tears? [Refrain]

3 What if the Master should come tonight?
What if He’d say unto thee,
“Are you in darkness or in the light?”
Then what would your answer be? [Refrain]

4 What if the Master should come tonight?
Summon you up to His throne,
Open the books in His judgment light,
And sentence to woeful doom? [Refrain]
