Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Remember, man, that awful day

Remember, man, that awful day

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.
