224. The Great Sacrifice

1 God is sweeping through the nations
With an awful, searching eye;
Every spot of imperfection
Much be purged, or hope must die.

Refrain:
God is coming, O my brother,
Can you face the solemn day?
All the pure His angels gather,
The defiled become a prey.

2 Jesus gave His life to purchase
For Himself a spotless bride—
All who fear Him and obey Him
Cleansed beneath the crimson tide. [Refrain]

3 To preserve her pure and spotless
He must make a sacrifice;
Give to evil spirits supper,
All who give to sin a place. [Refrain]

4 See His sword is bathed in heaven,
And the mountains strewn with dead;
All ye birds and beasts assemble,
Lo, a feast for you is spread. [Refrain]

5 Hear the angel loudly crying,
Standing in the blazing sun;
Wake, O man, while time is flying,
For the judgment has begun. [Refrain]
