Representative Text

1 Attend, my ear; my heart rejoice,
While Jesus from his throne,
Before the bright angelic hosts
Makes his last sentence known.

2 When sinners, cursed from his face,
To raging flames are driven;
His voice, with melody divine,
Thus calls his saints to heaven.

3 "Blessed of my father, all draw near,
Receive the great reward;
And rise, with rapture to possess
The kingdom love prepared.

4 "Ere earth's foundations first were laid,
His sovereign purpose wrought,
And reared those palaces divine,
To which you now are brought.

5 "There shall you reign unnumbered years,
Protected by my power;
While sin and death, and pains and cares,
Shall vex your souls no more."

6 Come, dear majestic Savior, come,
This Jubilee proclaim;
To teach us language fit to praise
So great, so dear a name.
