THE LAST JUDGEMENT




Great God, what do I see and hear!
The end of things created!
The Judge of mankind doth appear
On clouds of glory seated!
The trumpet sounds; the graves restore
The dead which they contained before:
Prepare, my soul, to meet him!


The dead in Christ are first to rise
And greet the archangel’s warning,
To meet the Saviour in the skies
On this auspicious morning:
No gloomy fears their souls dismay;
His presence sheds eternal day
On those prepared to meet him.


Far over space, to distant spheres,
The lightnings are prevailing:
The ungodly rise, and all their tears
And sighs are unavailing:
The day of grace is past and gone;
They shake before the Judge’s throne,
All unprepared to meet him.


Stay, fancy, stay, and close thy Wings,
Repress thy flight too daring !
One wondrous sight my comfort brings,
The Judge my nature wearing.
Beneath his cross I view the day
When heaven and earth shall pass away,
And thus prepare to meet him.
