Author: John Newton Meter: 220.127.116.11.4.7 Appears in 336 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 25:34-46 Lyrics: 1 Day of judgment! Day of wonders!
Hark! the trumpet's awesome 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 on that day as thine.
3 At his call the dead awaken,
rise to life from earth and sea.
All the powers 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, you blessed,
see the kingdom I bestow;
shall my love and glory know."
