|304||8 7. 8 7. 4 7|
|DAY of judgement, day of wonders,
Hear the trumpet’s awful sound;
Louder than ten thousand thunders,
Shakes the vast creation round!
How the summons
Will the sinner’s heart confound!
|2||See the Judge our nature wearing,
Clothed in majesty divine!
All who long for His appearing
Then shall say, ‘This God is mine!’
Own me in that Day as Thine!
|3||At His call the dead awaken,
Rise to life from earth and sea;
All the powers of nature shaken
At His look, prepare to flee:
What will then become of thee?
|4||But to all who have confessèd,
Loved and served the Lord below,
He will say, ‘Come near ye blessèd,
See the kingdom I bestow:
You for ever
Shall My love and glory know.’
|John Newton, 1725-1807|
