Representative Text

1 In the morning when the mist has cleared away,
When I come unto the light of perfect day,
What will be my record when the judgment books unfold,
And the story of my life is told?

Refrain:
When the story of my life is told,
When the judgment leaves of life unfold,
Shall my Savior say, “Well done!”
Or shall He my name disown,
When the story of my life is told?

2 When within His sacred presence I shall stand,
How my soul shall crave a place at His right hand!
O shall life or death for me those record pages hold,
When the story of my life is told? [Refrain]

3 Day by day I form the record of the years;
All I say and do there faithfully appears;
By my fruits I shall be known, He promised me of old,
When the story of my life is told. [Refrain]
