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. When the pendulum of time shall forever cease to swing,
And Jehovah’s trump o’er all the earth shall sound;
When the nations all shall rise, marching forth in solemn tread,
Tell, oh, tell me, on which side will you be found?

Refrain
On the Lord’s side, on the Lord’s side,
I will answer when Jehovah’s trump shall sound;
On the Lord’s side, on the Lord’s side,
Safely gathered with the faithful I’ll be found.

2. When the Book is opened there in the presence of the King,
And the millions crowd the judgment bar around;
When the hosts of great and small, over there before Him stand,
With the just upon the right will you be found? [Refrain]

3. There the secrets of the heart, good or evil tho’ they be,
He the righteous Judge will herald far and near;
When the nations He divides, as the shepherd doth his sheep,
Tell, oh, tell me, on which side will you appear? [Refrain]
