Samuel W. Beazley


We are told that the Savior will come again,
And the heavens shall pass away;
Is your heart filled with joy, or with fear and pain,
When you think of that wondrous day?


Do, you tremble, are you sad?
When you think of the judgment day?
Do, you tremble, are you sad?
When you think of the judgment day?

As a thief in the night will that great day come
When the earth melts with fervent heat;
Will the Lord bid you enter the saints’ bright home?
Will you share in the joy complete?


Do you feel condemnation upon your soul?
Is your heart burdened sore alway?
Is there joy, or does sadness upon you roll,
When you think of the judgment day?


Our dear Lord is not willing that one should die,
But that all men in Him should live;
Trust in Him, and the dangers will pass you by;
Life eternal to you He’ll give.
