Representative Text

1 On some glad and glorious morning
We shall hear the solemn warning,
Hear a trumpet ringing loudly in the skies;
Angel bands with torches flaming,
Will the judgment be proclaiming,
On that last great day
When all the dead shall rise.

Refrain:
On that judgment day,
On that last great day,
When the trumpet sounds,
And all the dead shall rise;
Will you hear the dreadful sentence,
Oh, depart, I know you not,
Or Dwell forevermore in paradise?

2 Oh, what weeping and what wailing,
Of the wicked ones now failing
At the judgment bar to enter paradise;
Oh, what shouting and rejoicing,
Of redeemed ones, praises voicing,
In that last great day
When all the dead shall rise. [Refrain]

3 Be ye ready for that morning,
When ye hear that clarion warning,
When the Son of Man appeareth in the skies;
Lest in darkness everlasting,
You the Lord shall then be casting,
On that last great day
When all the dead shall rise. [Refrain]
