Lyrics

Who shall abide His com­ing?
Who shall His chos­en be?
When at the Lord’s ap­pear­ing,
What shall He say of thee?
Who shall abide? Who shall abide?
When at the judg­ment,
O Christ, ap­pear­ing,
Who shall abide with Thee?

Who shall abide His com­ing?
Who shall He claim His own?
Stand in the day of judg­ment,
Spotless be­fore His throne?
Who shall abide? Who shall abide?
When at the judg­ment,
O Christ, ap­pear­ing,
Who shall abide with Thee?

Who shall abide His com­ing?
They who are un­de­filed;
They who in faith have fol­lowed
Christ, as a lit­tle child.
They shall abide, they shall abide.
When at the judg­ment,
O Christ, ap­pear­ing,
They shall abide with Thee.
