Representative Text

1 When Christ shall rend from end to end
The regions of the air;
And split the skies in twain likewise,
Then he'll himself appear.

2 Then he'll appear a drawing near
With armies broad and long;
In rank and file ten thousand mile,
Then we shall see the throng.

3 Then he will tell the archangel
To blow the trumpet loud,
Then all may hear both far and near;
Oh, then you'll see the crowd.

4 When he will call, both great and small,
The beggar, prince and drudge;
The high, and low, the poor also,
To come before the judge.

5 The sheep shall stand at Christ's right hand,
But goats at his left side:
All shall appear, from far and near,
To have their causes tried.

6 Then he will say, depart away,
Ye goats go down to dwell,
With the devil and his angels,
In a prepared hell.

7 But to the rest "Come up ye blest,"
(The Savior he will say)
"Come dwell above, and rest in Love,
To one eternal day.

8 "When you've been there ten thousand year,
Bright sining like the sun,
You've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when you first begun.

9 "Those robes you wear, so bright, and fair,
Which dazzle like the sun,
I've kept above, wrapt up in love;
Angels ne'er had them on.

10 "But know my bride, had I not died,
You must have naked gone;
They're made for you, I know they'll do,
For I have tried them on.

11 "Now who are they that dare to say,
I've been too kind to these?
A right I have to damn or save,
Or do just what I please."

12 Jesus I thirst, and go I must,
I long to be above;
I long to sing, and praise my King,
Where oceans flow with love.
