Hymn/Song Information

THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY




When God comes forth, with terrors clad,
From his resplendent seat,
What mortal can his power evade,
His arm of vengeance meet.


Impetuous lightnings swiftly glide,
Hoarse thunders round him roar;
Tempests and storms rage far and wide,
And spread from shore to shore.


The sea its wonted bed forsakes,
And stars come rushing down;
The earth to its foundation shakes,
And sinks beneath his frown.


Sinners, now pierced with guilty stings,
Dread his avenging eye;
And mighty conquerors, potent kings,
To rocks and cavern fly.


In Jesus’ spotless righteousness,
Oh may I then appear;
And ‘midst the terror and distress,
I need not yield to fear.
