COMING OF THE GREAT DAY




Awake, our souls, behold how nigh
The day, when from their bases hurled,
Mountains and hills shall mouldering lie,
Avenging flames consume the world.


The oceanís troubled waves ascend
In streams, and leave the burning shore;
The solid earth convulsions rend,
And skies and stars are seen no more.


Choas again assumes its seat,
And darkness fills its ancient throne;
In wild disorder, atoms meet,
And nature dies with awful groan.


But Jesus lives when nature dies,
His love survives sinís wrecks and spoils;
Pleased with the change, his saints arise,
And view below their finished toils.


When sinnersí hopes abortive prove,
And with the world their joys expire,
Then shall we sing unchanging love,
And ever feel the sacred fire.
