THAT day of wrath, that dreadful day,
When heaven and earth shall pass away,
What power shall be the sinner's stay?
How shall we meet that dreadful day?

When, shrivelling like a parched scroll,
The flaming heavens together roll;
When louder yet, and yet more dread,
Swells the high trump that wakes the dead;

Oh! on that day, that wrathful day,
When man to judgment wakes from clay,
Be Thou, O Christ, the sinner's stay,
Though heaven and earth shall pass away.

A men.

ST. PETER'S, WESTMINSTER. 8, 7, 8, 7, 4,7

Composed expressly for this Work by JAMES TURLE, 1862.

O! He comes! with clouds descending,
Once for favour'd sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of His train:
Hallelujah! Amen.

Every eye shall now behold Him,
Robed in dreadful majesty ;

Those who set at nought and sold Him,
Pierced, and nail'd Him to the tree,
Deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

Every island, sea, and mountain,

Heaven and earth shall flee away;
All who hate Him must, confounded,
Hear the trump proclaim the day;
Come to judgment!
Come to judgment! come away.

* Some years later adapted by Luther to a hymn of rejoicing, by the first line of which, "Nun freut euch, liebe Christen, g'mein," the tune is named in the German Hymnals.
