Representative Text

1 When the years have all flown,
And you face the judgment throne,
Will your soul be cleansed
By Jesus’ precious blood?
Free from every stain,
Knowing not a fear nor pain,
Ready to be giv’n with saints a blest abode?

Facing the throne, trembling with fear,
Waiting there, O soul, eternal doom to know;
Facing the throne, nothing to cheer,
Helpless, none to plead for you or mercy show!

2 When you’re facing the throne
Think not then you can atone
For the sins you have
Committed day by day;
While in life, oh! prepare,
If a golden crown you’d wear
In the land where songs of joy shall ring for aye! [Refrain]

3 When you’re facing the throne
By the mighty Judge unknown,
Then to answer for
Your actions dark or fair,
Tho’ for mercy you plead
There’ll be none your cries to heed,
Endless sorrow with the wicked you must share. [Refrain]
