1 Day of anger, day of wonder,
When the world shall roll asunder
Quenched in fire and smoke and thunder.
2 O vast terror; wild heart-rending,
Of that hour when earth is ending,
And her jealous judge descending.
3 When the trumpet’s voice astoundeth,
Through earth’s sepulchers reboundeth,
Summons universal soundeth.
4 Death astonished, nature shaken,
Sees all creatures, as they waken,
To that dire tribunal taken.
5 Lo! the book, where all is hoarded,
Not a secret unrecorded;
Every doom is thence awarded.
6 So the Judge when He arraigneth,
Every hidden thing explaineth:
Nothing unavenged remaineth.
7 In that fiery revelation,
Where shall I make supplication,
When the just hath scarce salvation?
8 Fount of love, dread King supernal,
Freely given life eternal,
Save me from the pains infernal.
9 This forget not, sweet Life-giver,
Me Thou camest to deliver;
Cast me not away forever.
