573. When all with awe shall stand around

1 When all with awe shall stand around
To hear their doom allotted,
O may my worthless name be found
In the Lamb's book unblotted!
Grant me a firm, unshaken faith;
For Thou, my Saviour, by Thy Death,
Hast purchased my salvation.

2 Before Thou shalt as Judge appear,
Pleased as my Intercessor;
And on that awful day declare
That I am Thy Confessor.
Then bring me to that blessed place
Where I may see, with open face,
The glory of Thy kingdom.

3 O Jesus! shorten the delay,
And hasten Thy salvation,
That we may see that glorious Day
Produce a new creation;
Lord, Jesus, come, our Judge and King!
Come, change our mournful notes, to sing
Thy praise for ever. Amen.
