1 And will the Judge descend?
And must the dead arise?
And not a single soul escape
His all-discerning eyes?
2 And from his righteous lips
Shall this dread sentence sound;
And through the numerous guilty throng,
Spread black despair around?
3 "Depart from me, accursed,
"To everlasting flame,
For rebel angels first prepared,
Where mercy never came."
4 How will my heart endure
The terrors of that day:
When earth and heaven, before his face,
Astonished shrink away?
5 But ere that trumpet shakes
The mansions of the dead;
Hark, from the gospel's cheering sound,
What joyful tidings spread!
6 Ye sinners, seek his grace,
Whose wrath ye cannot bear;
Fly to the shelter of his cross,
And find salvation there.
7 So shall that curse remove
By which the Savior bled;
And the last awful day shall pour
His blessings on your head.
