140. The Last Great Day

1 The earth shall melt with fervent heat,
The heavens pass away,
And all mankind their doom shall meet,
In that last great day.

Refrain:
Oh, that last great day is coming very soon,
’Tis the judgment day and the lost shall weep;
’Tis the crowning day, and the saints shall greet,
In that last great day.

2 The trump will sound, the Lord return,
And time no longer be,
The world in judgment flames consume,
In that last great day. [Refrain]

3 So all who make this world their God,
Can here no longer stay;
Their fondest hopes will all have fled,
In that last great day. [Refrain]

4 The quick and dead o’er land and sea
Will leave their mortal clay,
And put on immortality,
In that last great day. [Refrain]

5 The church of God no more shall need
This poor terrestrial home,
For she shall dwell with Christ, her head,
At the great white throne. [Refrain]
