570. When Thou, my righteous Judge, shalt come

1 When Thou, my righteous Judge, shalt come
To fetch Thy ransomed people home,
Shall I among them stand?
Shall such a worthless worm as I,
So sinful and unfit to die,
Be found at Thy right hand?

2 Blest Saviour, grant it by They grace;
Be Thou my soul's sure Hiding-place,
In this my gracious day:
Thy pardoning voice O let me hear,
To still my unbelieving fear,
Nor let me fall away!

3 Among Thy saints let me be found,
Whene'er the archangel's trump shall sound,
To see Thy smiling face;
Then loudest of the crowd I'll sing,
While heaven's resounding mansions ring
The riches of Thy grace.
