Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Must I in judgment stand?
Before my Lord appear;
Shall I appear at his right hand?
Or sentenc'd to despair.

2 Will then my Saviour say:
Come join the heav'nly hosts?
Or must I then be drove away,
To the infernal coasts?

3 O what will be my state,
When I from hence shall flee?
O matters of the greatest weight,
To launch eternity!

4 It strikes an awful gloom,
Far more than I can tell:
When I think on the life to come,
And where I am to dwell.

5 To hear the trumpet sound,
And see the flaming skies,
And my great Judge in glory crown'd,
What fears will then arise!

6 O how shall I appear,
In that tremendious day?
When I my Judge's voice shall hear:
Say, come, or go away.

7 O Saviour hear my pray'r;
Such witness grant to me:
Make me assur'd, when I appear,
That I shall go with thee.
