1 What will you do when the Judge appears,
What will you say of your misspent years,
How can you answer your mother's tears,
What will you do when the Judge appears?

Refrain
What will you do when the Judge appears?
Christ is the refuge whatever betide;
You will be saved if in Him you abide;
What will you do when the Judge appears?

2 What will you do when The Crucified
Points to the cross where for you he died,
How can you hide from your guilty fears,
What will you do when the Judge appears? [Refrain]

3 What will you do when you stand in need,
Without a friend who can intercede,
Too late your pleadings, in vain your tears,
What will you do when the Judge appears? [Refrain]

4 What will you do with your pomp and pride,
What will you do, for you must decide?
Hasten today, for the judgment nears;
What will you do when the Judge appears? [Refrain]
