1 Day of judgment! Day of wonders!
Hark! the trumpet's awful sound,
louder than a thousand thunders,
shakes the vast creation round.
How the summons
will the sinner's heart confound!
2 See the Judge, our nature wearing,
clothed in majesty divine;
you who long for his appearing
then shall say, "This God is mine!"
own me in that day as thine.
3 At his call the dead awaken,
rise to life from earth and sea;
all the pow'rs of nature, shaken
by his looks, prepare to flee.
what will then become of thee?
4 But to those who have confessed,
loved and served the Lord below,
He will say, "Come near, ye blessed,
see the kingdom I bestow;
shall my love and glory know."
