1 I've a long time heard that there will be a judgment,
That there will be a judgment in that day.
O there will be a judgment in that day,
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?
O there will be a judgment in that day,
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?

2 I've a long time heard that the sun will be darkened,
That the sun will be darkened in that day.
O the sun will be darkened in that day.
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?
O the sun will be darkened in that day.
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?

3 I've a long time heard that the earth will be burning,
That the earth will be burning in that day.
O the earth will be burning in that day,
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?
O the earth will be burning in that day,
O sinner, where will you stand in that day?

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
