Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Joel 3:12

Awake, thou guilty world, awake,
Whom God doth by His judgments shake,
And to the dread tribunal come!
Jesus on earth erects His seat,
And cites you here your doom to meet,
Type of your everlasting doom:
Avenger of His slighted laws,
His Gospel and His people’s cause,
In righteous wrath implacable,
The Lord with sword and fire shall plead,
Throughout the world destruction spread,
And sweep His slaughtered foes to hell.
