"The hour is coming in which all that
are in grave shall hear his voice”
- John 5:28
1. DAY of judgement! Day of wonders
Hark, the trumpet’s awful sound
Lounder than a thousand thunder
Shakes the vast creation round
How the summon, how the summons
Will the sinner’s heart confound!
2. See the judge, our nature wearing
Clothed in majesty divine
Ye who love the Lord‘s appearing
Then shall say,This God is mine!
Gracious Saviour, gracious Saviour
Own me on that day as thine.
3. At this call the dead awaken
Rise to life from earth and sea
All the pow’rs of nature, shaken
At this call prepare to flee
Careless sinner, careless sinner
What will then become of thee?
4. The devil that deceives thee now
Listen thou not unto him
When these riches shall pass away
It shall find thee in the fire
My friend, think thou/2x
Of thy place in burning hell.
5. Under affliction and mockery
Let this word thy counsel be
The day of the Lord comes quickly
Then our tears will turn to joy
We shall conquer, we shall conquer,
When the world by fire consumed. Amen
