1 Sinner spurning mercy’s hand,
Judgment day is coming;
Where O where then will you stand?
Judgment day is coming;
Fires of hell are burning still,
Awful vengeance to fulfill;
Sinner, yield your stubborn will,
Judgment day is coming.

Coming, coming, coming soon,
Judgment day and hopeless doom;
Cast into eternal gloom,
Judgment day is coming.

2 Skies are clear and bright today,
Judgment day is coming;
And your heart is light and gay,
Judgment day is coming;
Soon you’ll hear the thunder roll,
Bringing anguish to your soul;
Writing on a burning scroll,
Judgment day is coming. [Refrain]

3 Tenderly the Savior pleads,
Judgment day is coming;
Still for you He intercedes,
Judgment day is coming;
Will you spurn His loving plea?
Sinner, I have died for thee;
Heavy laden, come to Me,
Judgment day is coming. [Refrain]

4 Will you lose your precious soul?
Judgment day is coming;
Soon the bells of death will toll,
Judgment day is coming;
O how swift the moments fly,
And how fleet the years go by;
Soon ’twill be your time to die;
Judgment day is coming. [Refrain]
