Representative Text

1 The terrible day of judgment is coming,
Its dawning is drawing near;
The trumpet’s loud call will say to all nations,
"Before the dread bar appear."

O that terrible, terrible day,
O that terrible, terrible day,
It’s coming to me, it’s coming to you,
That day is coming to all.

2 The good will be placed on the right of the Savior,
The bad on the left, away;
Each one will receive reward for his labor,
O where will you stand that day? [Refrain]

3 O have you e’er thought of the last separation,
When Jesus the Judge will say:
"Depart to the regions of darkness eternal";
Are you ready to meet that day? [Refrain]
