Scripture Verse

The day of judgment is coming, burning like a furnace. On that day the arrogant and the wicked will be burned up like straw. They will be consumed—roots, branches, and all. But for you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in His wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture. Malachi 4:1–2

Lyrics

The judgment day is coming,
We warn you faithfully;
A shelter find in Jesus;
Be saved eternally.
We plead with fervent pleading:
From wrath and peril flee,
And find in Christ a refuge,
A hiding place for thee.

Refrain

The day of judgment hastens;
What shall thy sentence be?
Redeemed and saved thro’ Jesus,
Or lost eternally?

The shoals and rocks hold peril
And danger, soul, for thee;
On Jesus cast thy anchor,
And find security;
When thou art called to judgment,
What then will be thy plea?
The blood of Jesus only
Will then avail for thee.

Refrain
