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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Ye nations, who on earth do dwell

Ye nations, who on earth do dwell

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Ye nations, who on earth do dwell,
Hear what the Saviour doth fore-tell!
Great signs and wonders there shall be;
Distress and great perplexity.

2 Darkness shall hide the glorious Sun,
And blackness shall obscure the Moon!
Yea, every star will cease to shine,
And all their glitt'ring rays decline.

3 The hearts of men shall fail with fear,
Waiting for things that shall appear:
The seas with great convulsion roar,
The heavens shake with all her pow'r.

4 Then shall the mighty Saviour come
In glory power and wisdom;
Ye faithful then look up on high,
And see your great redemption nigh.

5 Notice the Saviour's Parable,
Behold the fig-tree shews full well:
When she puts forth her tender bough,
The summer then is near ye know.

6 Thus when these noted signs ye see
With all the Saviour's words agree,
Then may ye fully understand:
The Saviour's kingdom is at hand.

7 Dear Lord, prepare us for the day,
May we be wise to watch and pray!
Prepare us Lord, to stand the test,
And share the blessing with the bless'd.
