There’s a great judg­ment day
That is coming, we know,
It’s coming to one and all;
For the Judge shall descend
In His power divine,
And judge both the great and small.


When Je­sus comes
And the judg­ment is set,
O! who will be on His right hand?
When the trumpet shall sound,
And the nations have come,
O! who shall be able to stand?

Then the righteous and wicked
Together shall meet,
To judg­ment they shall be brought;
And the Judge shall pro­claim
To the righteous, Well done.
The wicked, I know you not.


There will be great rejoicing
Of happy ones there,
Who followed the Sav­ior here;
When they hear Him declare,
Come, ye blessèd of Mine,
And enter My home so fair.


But there’ll be lamentation
And mourning that day,
When Je­sus shall say, Depart;
And the wicked shall flee
From His presence away,
What rending of every heart!


O! prepare us, dear Lord,
For Thy coming ere long,
The judg­ment of that great day;
When the saints shall rejoice
In Thy presence with song,
The wicked be driv’n away.
