Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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]
