42. How Shall We Stand in the Judgment?

1 When Jesus shall gather the nations,
Before him at last to appear,
Then how shall we stand in the Judgment,
When summon'd our sentence to hear?

Chorus:
He will gather the wheat in his garner,
But the chaff will he scatter away;
Then how shall we stand in the Judgment
Of the great resurrection day?

2 Shall we hear, from the lips of the Saviour,
The words "faithful servant, well done,"
Or trembling with tear and with anguish,
Be banished away from his throne? [Chorus]

3 He will smile when he looks on his children,
And sees on the ransom'd his seal;
He will clothe them in heavenly beauty,
As low at his footstool they kneel. [Chorus]

4 Then let us be watching and waiting,
With lamps burning steady and bright;
When the Bridegroom shall call to the wedding
O may we be ready for flight! [Chorus]

5 Thus living with hearts fixed on heaven,
In patience we wait for the time
When the days of our pilgrimage ended,
We'll bask in the presence divine. [Chorus]
