Representative Text

1 If Jesus should summon the nations
Before Him just now to appear,
Calling the dead into judgment,
Bidding the living draw near,
Each to receive from the Master
Reward, whatsoever it be,
Then, O my brother, my sister,
How would it fare with thee?

Refrain:
How would it fare with me?
How would it fare with thee?
If summoned this moment to meet Him,
How would it fare with thee?

2 Would we be found watching and waiting
To welcome our Savior and Lord?
Could we rejoice if this moment
He would fulfill His own word?
If on a chariot of glory
The blessed Redeemer we’d see,
Tell me, my sister, my brother,
How would it fare with thee? [Refrain]

3 Our Savior is coming as surely
As once He was born long ago;
Some will be glad to receive Him,
Some will reap sorrow and woe.
They who are faithful will hail Him,
The careless His presence will flee;
Soon He will come in His glory;
How will it fare with thee? [Refrain]
