Daniel B. Towner


On that great day of judgment,
What will you say?
When all the books are opened,
And none can hide away;
When every hidden secret
By the Judge will be made known,
And you behold the harvest
Of the seed you here have sown.


Render unto Cæsar
The things that are Cæsar’s,

But give unto God His own;
For the great day of judgment
Is coming soon,
When every knee shall bow
Before the great white throne.

On that great day of judgment,
What will you do?
If Jesus tells the Father
That you He never knew;
And you’re refused a fleeting glimpse
Of heav’nly joy to see,
But with the lost are doomed
To spend a long eternity.


On that great day of judgment,
No fear I’ll know;
By grace I was delivered
On Calv’ry long ago;
O hasten while there yet is time
God’s promise to prove true,
For He has said that His shed blood
Doth still avail for you.
