Representative Text

1 Remember man that awful day,
When all in judgment must appear,
When none can screen or flee away,
But stand their sentence there to hear.

2 When all the nations of the earth,
Yea all that are of Adam's race,
From East and West, and South and North
Are call'd before their Judge's face.

3 Impartial judgement then shall pass,
Without indulgence or regard;
And ev'ry rank and ev'ry class,
Receive their just and due reward.

4 There no respect to man is paid,
But all must stand the solemn test:
The beggar and the crowned head,
Must be for ever curs'd or blest.

5 those sins and vices here conceal'd,
And hidden from the eyes of men,
Shall be to public view reveal'd,
With ev'ry blot and guilt and stain.

6 What dread will seize the guilty mind,
And what a burning hell within;
What horrors will those wretches find,
Who liv'd and died in wilful sin.

7 Our minds impress'd with such a thought
Should fill our hearts with holy fear,
And this should never be forgot;
In judgment we must all appear.
