1 Jesus comes, the judge of all:
Heav’n’s bright hosts adore Him;
All the people, great and small
Now must stand before Him.
Crowns of glory wreathe His head:
Christ, the Lord’s anointed;
Judge of living, and of dead:
Judge of old, appointed.

2 Heaven and earth, that stood so long
Showing forth His glory,
Now are, though they seemed so strong,
Like a finished story.
Caused to cease by Him whose power
Gave them first a being;
Lo! they perish from this hour:
’Tis the Lord’s decreeing.

3 Savior, in that awful day,
Keep our hearts from sinking;
For e’en now we feel dismay,
Of the season thinking.
May we lift our heads that day,
Day of God’s salvation;
May we joyful hear Him say,
"Yours a glorious station."

Kelly, Thomas, B.A., son of Thomas Kelly, a Judge of the Irish Court of Common Pleas, was born in Dublin, July 13, 1769, and educated at Trinity College, Dublin. He was designed for the Bar, and entered the Temple, London, with that intention; but having undergone a very marked spiritual change he took Holy Orders in 1792. His earnest evangelical preaching in Dublin led Archbishop Fowler to inhibit him and his companion preacher, Rowland Hill, from preaching in the city. For some time he preached in two unconsecrated buildings in Dublin, Plunket Street, and the Bethesda, and then, having seceded from the Established Church, he erected places of worship at Athy, Portarlington, Wexford, &c, in which he conducted divine worship and preached.
