Hymn/Song Information

Thou judge of quick and dead before Whose bar




Thou Judge of quick and dead,
before Whose bar severe,
With holy joy, or guilty dread,
we all shall soon appear;


Our cautioned souls prepare
for that tremendous day,
And fill us now with watchful care,
and stir us up to pray.


To pray, and wait the hour,
that wondrous hour unknown,
When, robed in majesty and power,
Thou shalt from heaven come down


The immortal Son of man,
to judge the human race,
With all Thy Fatherís dazzling train,
with all Thy glorious grace.


To damp our earthly joys,
to increase our gracious fears,
For ever let the archangelís voice
be sounding in our ears;


The solemn midnight cry,
ďYe dead, the Judge is come,
Arise, and meet Him in the sky,
and meet your instant doom!Ē


O may we thus be found
obedient to His Word,
Attentive to the trumpetís sound,
and looking for our Lord!


O may we thus ensure
a home among the blest;
And watch a moment to secure
an everlasting rest!


To sober our earthly joys,
to quicken holy fears,
For ever let the archangelís voice
be sounding in our ears;


---Alternative verses---


Thou Judge of quick and dead,
before Whose awful bar,
With holy joy, or guilty dread,
we all must soon appear;


Our souls by grace prepare
for that tremendous day,
And fill us now with watchful care,
and stir us up to pray.


Our wakened souls prepare
for that tremendous day,
And fill us now with watchful care,
and stir us up to pray.


To pray, and wait the hour,
that awful hour unknown,
When, robed in majesty and power,
Thou shalt from heaven come down


O may we thus be found
obedient to thy Word,
And waiting for the trumpetís sound,
which marks thy coming, Lord!


O may we all be found
obedient to His Word,
Attentive to the trumpetís sound,
and looking for our Lord!


O may we all be found
obedient to thy Word,
Attentive to the trumpetís sound,
and looking for our Lord!


O thou through grace ensure
our lot among the blest;
That found in thee we may secure
thine everlasting rest!


O may we thus ensure
a lot among the blest;
And watch a moment to secure
an everlasting rest!
