12464. The Day Of Wrath

1 Earth’s harvest of souls is come,
Her summer forever past;
How solemn the thought!
The deluge of doom
Breaks over the world at last.

The day of His wrath is come:
Who shall be able, be able to stand?
Who mid the floods of devouring flame
In safety shall dwell at the King’s right hand?
Who mid the floods of devouring flame
Shall dwell, shall dwell,
Shall dwell at the King’s right hand?

2 O hark to the awful din!
The tempest beclouds the sky;
And now from the slaves
Of death and of sin
Ariseth this bitter cry: [Refrain]

3 What horror of grim despair!
All faces are wan and pale;
The host of the lost
Are gathering here
To join in one hopeless wail: [Refrain]

4 No longer may peace be sought,
No longer are sins forgiv’n;
The Judge has decreed
He knoweth them not,
And barred is the gate of Heav’n. [Refrain]

5 O wand’rer, return to God,
The message of love obey;
O spurn not the call—
Believe on the Lord,
And stand in that fearful day. [Refrain]
