The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.@2 Peter 3:10

The earth shall melt with fervent heat,
The heavens pass away,
And all mankind their doom shall meet,
In that last great day.

Refrain

Oh, that last great day, is coming very soon,
’Tis the judgment day, and the lost shall weep;
’Tis the crowning day, and the saints shall greet
In that last great day.

The trump will sound, the Lord return,
And time no longer stay,
The world in judgment flames consume,
In that last great day.

Refrain

The elements that now compose
The ball on which we stay,
To smoke and vapor must dissolve,
In that last great day.

Refrain

So, all who make this world their god,
Can here no longer stay;
Their fondest hopes will all have fled,
In that last great day.

Refrain

The quick and dead, o’er land and sea,
Will leave their mortal clay;
And put on immortality,
In that last great day.

Refrain

The Church of God no more shall need,
This poor terrestrial home;
For she shall dwell with Christ, her head,
At the last great day.
