Representative Text

1 O, the time is fast approaching,
When the judgment day shall come,
When we’ll hear the trumpet sounding;
Will we hear Him say, Come home?

Refrain:
The judgment day is drawing near,
And are we saved from all our sin?
O, will we hear the Master say,
Come, ye blessed, enter in?

2 There shall be before Him gathered,
Every soul from every land;
Will you be among the righteous,
Or with those at His left hand? [Refrain]

3 O! how sad ’twill be, my brother,
For you at the judgment day,
When He says, Ye blessed, enter,
But then you are turned away. [Refrain]

4 We shall all meet at the judgment;
All hearts must be free from sin,
Or He’ll say, Depart, ye cursed,
And they cannot enter in. [Refrain]
