LOOKING FOR MERCY IN THAT DAY




See, the Saviour comes to judgment,
Wearing his imperial crown;
Robed with brightest flames celestial,
Dusky clouds he makes his throne:
|: By his glory :|
And his sceptre he is known.


Now the trumpet wakes the nations,
O’er the world its sound is spread;
Shakes the earth, pervades the ocean,
Calls to life the numerous dead:
|: Now poor sinner, :|
Whither canst thou hide thy head!


Life in every urn is breathing,
Every prison yields its store?
Souls and bodies are uniting,
Joining now to part no more:
|: Day of wonders, :|
Day of God’s almighty power.


Rebels who the Saviour slighted,
Now confused before him fly;
Refuge take in rocks and mountains,
To evade his piercing eye:
|: Fear his vengeance, :|
Seek for safety far and nigh.


But the mountains cannot hide them,
Rocks regard not when they pray;
‘Midst the general conflagration,
Rocks ad mountains melt away:
|: Every refuge :|
Disappears in that great day.


Jesus, but reveal thy mercy,
Tell oh tell me I am thine;
Then amidst dissolving nature,
I will sing of grace divine;
|: Swell thy triumphs, :|
And in hallelujahs join.
