66. What If the Master Should Come?

1 What if the Master should come tonight?
Would you be ready to go?
Can you now say you have done the right,
Or must you with shame say no?

Refrain:
What if the Master should come?
What if the Master should come?
Will you be ready, waiting to go?
Oh, what if the Master should come?

2 What if the Master should come tonight?
Would you not tremble with fears?
Or could you welcome that blissful sight,
Without bitter sighs or tears? [Refrain]

3 What if the Master should come tonight?
What if He’d say unto thee,
“Are you in darkness or in the light?”
Then what would your answer be? [Refrain]

4 What if the Master should come tonight?
Summon you up to His throne,
Open the books in His judgment light,
And sentence to woeful doom? [Refrain]
