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?

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]
