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

1.
When Gabriel's awful trump shall sound,
And rend the rocks, convulse the ground,
And give to time her utmost bound,
Ye dead, arise to judgment;
See lightnings flash and thunders roll,
See earth wrapped up like parchment scroll;
Comets blaze,
Sinners raise,
Dread amaze,
Horrors seize
The guilty sons of Adam's race,
Unsaved from sin by Jesus.

2.
The Christian filled with rapturous joy,
Midst flaming worlds he mounts on high,
To meet the Savior in the sky,
And see the face of Jesus;
The soul and body reunite,
And filled with glory infinity,
Blessed day,
Christians say!
Will you pray,
That we may
All join the happy company,
To praise the name of Jesus.

The Southern Harmony
