The Judgment Scene. *t

f 1 HPHE Lord shall come,—the earth shall quake, J

A The mountains to their centre shake; \

— And, withering from the vault of night, J

> The stars shall pale their feeble light. {

— 2 The Lord shall come,—but not the same * mp As once, in lowliness, he came,— J p A silent lamb before his foes,— j p> A weary man, and full of woes. \

> 3 The Lord shall corae,—a dreadful form, i

> With rainbow wreath, and robes of storm, j / On cherub wings and wings of wind,— J

Appointed Judge of all mankind. j

— 4 Can this be he, who wont to stray J

A pilgrim on the world's highway,— }

Oppressed by power, and mocked by pride, j

> The Nazarene—the Crucified? \ mp 5 While sinners in despair shall call,— J ""Rocks,—hide us!—mountains! on us fall!"- < The saints, ascending from the tomb, / Shall joyful sing,—" The Lord is come!"

The Judgment in Prospect.

mp 1 A ND will the Judge descend? -&• And must the dead arise? And not a single soul escape His all-discerning eyes?

2 How will my heart endure The terrors of that day, < "When earth and heaven before his face,

> Astonished, shrink away?

— 8 But, ere that trumpet shakes The mansions of the dead,

Loved and served the Lord below, I

* He will say,—"Come near, ye blessed! i i See the kingdom I bestow! I I mf You for ever $ J Shall my love and glory know." \

2 The dead in Christ shall first arise, \

At the last trumpet's sounding,

< Caught up to meet him in the skies,
f With joy their Lord surrounding:

No gloomy fears their souls dismay,
His presence sheds eternal day,
On those prepared to meet him.

— 3 Great God! what do I see and hear ?—

The end of things created!
Behold the Judge of man appear,

< On clouds of glory seated!

< Low at his cross I view the day,
mf "When heaven and earth shall pass away,

— And thus prepare to meet him.

"While in anguish thus lamenting, That he ne'er was born again I pp Greatly mourning,—

p That he ne'er was born again!—

3 u Yonder sits my slighted Saviour,
With the marks of dying love;

< Oh! that I had sought his favor,

— When I felt his Spirit move! Golden moments,—

"When I felt his Spirit move 1"

mp 4 Now, despisers! look and wonder;

> Hope and sinners here must part; / Louder than a peal of thunder,

> Hear the dreadful sound,—" Depart 1" pp Lost for ever,—

> Hear the dreadful sound,—" Depart I"

mp 1 THAT day of wrath!—that dreadful day,

— 1 When heaven and earth shall pass away !What power shall be the sinner's stay?

> How shall he meet that dreadful day,—

— 2 When, shriveling like a parched scroll,

The naming heavens together roll;

< And louder yet—and yet more dread,—

/ Swells the high trump that wakes the dead?

mp 3 Oh! on that day—that wrathful day,

When man to judgment wakes from clay,

< Be thou, O Christ! the sinner's stay,— mf Though heaven and earth shall pass away.

n n Q HYMN 669, C. M.

0 0 *J The cheering Prospect of Heaven*

m 1 THERE is a land of pure delight, i- Where saints immortal reign, Infinite day excludes the night, And pleasures banish pain.

| 2 There, everlasting spring abides, j

5 And never-withering flowers; I

\ < Death, like a narrow sea, divides j

J ■— This heavenly land from ours. • J

dol 8 Sweet fields, beyond the swelling flood, Stand dressed in living green;

— So to the Jews old Canaan stood, While Jordan rolled between.

mp 4 But tim'rous mortals start and shrink

To cross this narrow sea; J

And linger, shivering on the brink, 8

> And fear to launch away. \

mp 5 Oh! could we make our doubts remove,-— (

Those gloomy doubts that rise,— * j

— And see the Canaan that we love, } With imbeclouded eyes;— j

mf 6 Could we but climb where Moses stood, J

I And view the landscape o'er,— * ♦

J > "Not Jordan's streams, nor death's'cold flood, J

# < Should fright us from the shore. \
