1 When the overflowing scourge is passing swiftly o'er the land,

When the nations, long so sinful,
shall approach their awful doom;
In the solemn separation

or will you with the wicked go away. [Refrain]
3 There's an everlasting kingdom
that in glory yet shall stand;
And thro' Christ, at His next coming,
Shall the meek possess the land;
When the wicked shall be stubble,
then shall God's own people reign,
And their Lord shall dwell among them,
when He comes to earth again. [Refrain]
