Oh! on that day, that wrathful day,
A . men.
10! He comes! with clouds descending, Now redemption, long expected, U Once for favour'd sinners slain;
See, in solemn pomp appear! Thousand thousand saints attending All His saints, by man rejected, Swell the triumph of His train :
Now shall meet Him in the air! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Amen.
See the day of God appear ! Every eye shall now behold Him, Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee, Robed in dreadful majesty;
High on Thine eternal Throne! Those who set at nought and sold Him, Saviour! take the power and glory ; Pierced, and nail'd Him to the tree, Claim the kingdom for Thine own! Deeply wailing,
Oh, come quickly! Shall the true Messiah see.
Hallelujah! Come, Lord, come! Every island, sea, and mountain,
Heaven and earth shall flee away ;
Come to judgment!
• Some years later adapted by Luther to a hymn of rejoicing, by the first line of which, “ Non freut euch, liebe Christen, g'mein," the tune is named in the German Hymnals.
GREAT God! what
do I see and hear! The end of things created ! The Judge of mankind doth appear,
On clouds of glory seated! The trumpet sounds; the graves restore The dead which they contain'd before :
Prepare, my soul, to meet Him.
The dead in Christ shall first arise,
At the last trumpet's sounding; Caught up to meet Him in the skies,
With joy their Lord surrounding.
presence sheds eternal day
But sinners, fill'd with guilty fears,
Behold His wrath prevailing, For they shall rise, and find their tears
And sighs are unavailing. The day of grace is past and gone; Trembling, they stand before the throne,
All unprepared to meet Him.
Great God! what do I see and hear !
The end of things created !
On clouds of glory seated !
And thus prepare to meet Him.
