1. The judgment day is coming,
We warn you faithfully;
A shelter find in Jesus;
Be saved eternally.
We plead with fervent pleading:
From wrath and peril flee,
And find in Christ a refuge,
A hiding place for thee.
The day of judgment hastens;
What shall thy sentence be?
Redeemed and saved thro’ Jesus,
Or lost eternally?
2. The shoals and rocks hold peril
And danger, soul, for thee;
On Jesus cast thy anchor,
And find security;
When thou art called to judgment,
What then will be thy plea?
The blood of Jesus only
Will then avail for thee. [Refrain]
