Representative Text

1 God is sitting in the awful valley,
Near His final judgment seat;
And His present mighty truth is calling
Every nation at His feet.

Wake, ye nations, gather near,
Heaven’s truth you now must hear;
By it stand, approved in white,
Or condemned in heaven’s light.

2 Go, ye heralds, shout aloud the summons,
Let the standard be unfurled;
Judgment to the gospel line and plummet,
To the ends of all the world. [Refrain]

3 Bring the mighty down to utter nothing,
Let the weakest say, “I’m strong,”
Beat your plowshares into holy weapons,
Press the battle ‘gainst the wrong. [Refrain]
