THOUGHTS ON THE JUDGMENT DAY

Think, O my soul, the dreadful day,

When heaven and earth shall flee away,

When Christ in solemn pomp shall come,

Upon his white majestic throne.

Then Gabriel, at the King’s command,

Shall take the trumpet in his hand,

And sound alarm, so shrill and clear,

That heaven, and earth, and hell shall hear.

The grand assize will then take place,

On every soul of Adam’s race;

Both saint and sinner must appear,

And all their final sentence hear.

The saints, in glittering robes, shall stand,

In that great day, at God’s right hand;

The Lamb’s rich blood shall be their plea,

And they his smiling face shall see.

“Come, all the bless’d of God,” he’ll say,

“My blood hath wash’d your sins away;

“Come, take your golden harps and sing,

“And make the heavenly arches ring.”

But what will guilty sinners do,

When all their sins appear in view?

How will they tremble, cry, and groan,

To see their Judge upon his throne!

“Depart from me, ye sinful race,

“Ye broke my laws, abused my grace;

“Go down to darkness and despair,

“And dwell eternal ages there.”

– Elder John Leland

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”

Hebrews 9:27

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”

II Corinthians 5:10

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Romans 10:13

Have you placed your faith in the Lord Jesus? 

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,

that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16
