Representative Text

1 The judgment day is coming, coming, coming,
The judgment day is coming;
Oh, that great day.

Chorus:
Let us take the wings of the morning
And fly away to Jesus;
Let us take the wings of the morning
And sound the jubilee.

2 I heard the trumpet sounding, sounding, sounding,
I heard the trumpet sounding,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

3 I saw the Judge descending, descending, descending,
I saw the Judge descending,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

4 I saw the dead arising, arising, arising,
I saw the dead arising,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

5 I heard the thunder rolling, rolling, rolling,
I heard the thunder rolling,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

6 I saw the lightning blazing, blazing, blazing,
I saw the lightning blazing,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

7 I heard the wicked wailing, wailing, wailing,
I heard the wicked wailing,
On that great day.

Chorus:
For they took not the wings of the morning
Nor flew away to Jesus;
For they took not the wings of the morning
Nor sang the jubilee.

8 I heard the righteous shouting, shouting, shouting,
I heard the righteous shouting,
On that great day.

Chorus:
For they took the wings of the morning
And flew away to Jesus;
For they took the wings of the morning,
And sang the jubilee.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
