HYMN 661, L. M. 661
The Judgment Scene. f 1 IE Lord shall come,—the earth shall quake,
The mountains to their centre shake;
The stars shall pale their feeble light.
2 The Lord shall come,—but not the same mp As once, in lowliness, he came,-P
A silent lamb before his foes,
A weary man, and full of woes.
With rainbow wreath, and robes of storm,
Appointed Judge of all mankind.
A pilgrim on the world's highway,--
The Nazarene--the Crucified?
“Rocks,-hide us !--mountains! on us fall!".-
HYMN 662, 8s, 75 and 4. 662
Saints and Sinners judged,
Hark )--the trumpet's awful sound,
Shakes the vast creation round:
How the summons PP
Will the sinner's heart confound !
Clothed in majesty divine!
Then shall say,---"This God is mi ze !"
Own me in that day for thine.
Rise to life from earth and sea;
By his looks, prepare to flee:
What will then become of thee
4 But to those who have confesséd,
Loved and served the Lord below,
“Come near, ye blesséd !
Shall my love and glory know."
HYMN 663, 8s and 78, Irregular, 663
Christ coming to Judgment.
The end of things created!
On clouds of glory seated!
Prepare, my soul! to meet him.
At the last trumpet's sounding,
With joy their Lord surrounding:
On those prepared to meet him.
The end of things created !
On clouds of glory seated!
Low at his cross I view the day, mf When heaven and earth shall pass away,
And thus prepare to meet him.
HYMN 664, S. M. 664
The Judgment in Prospect. mp ND will the Judge descend ?
And must the dead arise ?
His all-discerning eyes?
The terrors of that day,
Astonished, shrink away?
The mansions of the dead,
Hark!--froin the gospel's cheering sound
What joyful tidings spread !
His wrath ye cannot bear;
And find salvation there.
By which the Saviour bled;
His blessings on your head.
HYMN 665, C. P. M. 665
The Saint at Christ's right Hand. 1 THEN thou, my righteous Judge! shalt come To fetch thy ransomed people home,
Shall I among them stand?
Be found at thy right hand ?
In this th’ accepted day;
Nor let me fall, I pray.
Whene'er th' archangel's trump shall sound,
To see thy smiling face;
With shouts of sovereign grace.
HYMN 666, 8s, 75 and 4. 666
The Sinner's Doom.
View him seated on his throne!
Stand and hear thine awful doom;
Stand and hear thine awful doom, P 2 Hear the cries he now is venting,
Filled with dread of fiercer pain;
While in anguish thus lamenting,
That he ne'er was born again! PP
Greatly mourning, P
That he ne'er was born again l-
With the marks of dying love;
When I felt his Spirit move!
When I felt his Spirit move !" mp4 Now, despisers! look and wonder;
Hope and sinners here must part;
Hear the dreadful sound, -"Depart!"
Hear the dreadful sound, -"Depart !"
HYMN 667, L.M. 667
The Day of Wrath. mp 1
When heaven and earth shall pass away! What power shall be the sinner's stay?
How shall he meet that dreadful day,–
The flaming heavens together roll;
Swells the high trump that wakes the dead: тр 3 Oh! on that day—that wrathful day,
When man to judgment wakes from clay,
Be thou, O Christ! the sinner's stay,mf Though heaven and earth shall pass away.
HYMN 668, S. M. . 668
The Lord coming to Judgment. 1 EHOLD! the day is come,
The righteous Judge is near; > And sinners, trembling at their doom,
Shall soon their sentence hear. my 2 Angels, in bright attire,
Conduct him through the skies ;
Attend him as he flies.
3 How awful is the sight!
How loud the thunders roar!
And stars are seen no more.
4 The whole creation groans,
But saints arise and sing;
And he their God and King.
HYMN 669, C. M. 669
The cheering Prospect of Heavon.
Where saints immortal reign,
And pleasures banish pain.
And never-withering flowers;
This heavenly land from ours.
Stand dressed in living green;
While Jordan rolled between.
To cross this narrow sea;
And fear to launch away. тр 5 Oh! could we make our doubts remove,
Those glooiny doubts that rise,
With unbeclouded eyes;-
And view the landscape o'er,--
Should fright us from the shore.
