Day of wrath! that day of mourning! See ful-Alled the prophet's warn-ing, o what fear man's bos-om rendeth, When from heaven the Judge de-scend-eth,
Heaven and earth in ash-es burn: ing! 3. Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth, On whose sentence all de - pend eth! 4. Death is struck, and nature quaking,
Through earth's sepulchers it ringeth, All be-fore the throne it bring

5 Lo, the Book, exactly worded,
Wherein all hath been recorded!
Thence shall judgment be awarded. 6 When the Judge His seat attaineth,
And each hidden deed arraigneth,
Nothing unavenged remaineth. 7 What shall I, frail man, be pleading?
Who for me be interceding,
When the just are mercy needing? 8 King of majesty tremendous,
Who dost free salvation send us,
Fount of pity, then befriend us! 9 Think, good Jesus! my salvation
Caused Thy wondrous incarnation, Leave me not to reprobation! 10 Faint and weary Thou hast sought
me, On the cross of suffering bought me: Shall such grace in vain be brought
11 Righteous Judge! for sin's pollution
Grant Thy gift of absolution,
Ere that day of retribution.
All my shame with anguish owning:
Thou the dying thief forgavest;
And to me a hope vouchsafest. 14 Worthless are my prayers and sigh
ing, Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,
Rescue me from fires undying! 15 With Thy favored sheep O place me!
Nor among the goats abase me;
But to Thy right hand upraise me. 16 While the wicked are confounded,
Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
Around the throne of glory
The Lamb ye shall behold, In triumph cast before Him
Your diadems of gold! 4 Our hope and expectation,
O Jesus, now appear; Arise, Thou Sun so longed for,
O'er this benighted sphere! With hearts and hands uplifted,
We plead, O Lord, to see The day of earth's redemption, That brings us unto Thee!
O Son of God, we wait for Thee, We long for Thine
