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.
