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
