I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books.@Revelation 20:12

On that great day of judgment, what will you say?
When all the books are opened, and none can hide away;
When every hidden secret by the Judge will be made known,
And you behold the harvest of the seed you here have sown.

Refrain

Render unto Cæsar the things that are Cæsar’s,
But give unto God His own;
For the great day of judgment is coming soon,
When every knee shall bow before the great white throne.

On that great day of judgment, what will you do?
If Jesus tells the Father that you He never knew;
And you’re refused a fleeting glimpse of heav’nly joy to see,
But with the lost are doomed to spend a long eternity.

Refrain

On that great day of judgment, no fear I’ll know;
By grace I was delivered on Calv’ry long ago;
O hasten while there yet is time God’s promise to prove true,
For He has said that His shed blood doth still avail for you.

Refrain
