14. Day of terror, day of doom. [A translation of the Dies irae.] By A. P. Stanley, from the Roman Missal, appeared in G. Redmond Portal's Hymns for Use of the Parish of Albury, 1864, in 9 stanzas of 6 lines. In 1868 it was given in Macmillan’s Magazine, and in 1869 in the Appendix to Hymns for Use in the Chapel of Marlborough Collection as, "Day of wrath, O dreadful day," with an additional stanza. The same was repeated in the Westminster Abbey Hymn Book, 1883. In the Hymnary1872, it is given, with the addition of 3 stanzas by the Editors ("Nought of Thee my prayers can claim"; "Make me with Thy sheep to stand"; and "Full of tears and full of dread"), and divided into three parts, pt. ii. being, "When, in that tremendous day," and pt. iii., "0 just Judge, to whom belongs." The ten-stanza form is repeated in a few American hymn-books, including Laudes Domini, 1884, and others.
