Jesus comes, and through the sky
Angels tell their joy aloud.
Sounds abroad o'er sea and land :
Their redemption is at hand.
Heaven and earth before Him fly.
Rise to meet Him in the sky:
Where no foe can e'er molest;
Ever blessing, ever blest. 341 • Every Eye shall see Him.' 1 AND must we see that solemn day,
And rise to view His face,
And earth obtain no place ?
In all His majesty ;
As when He came to die.
Who here His grace possessed, • Ye blessed of My Father, come
To My eternal rest.' 4 But those who never sought His face
Will hear the awful sound, ' Depart, ye cursed, to the place
Where hope is never found.'
5 The righteous then will sweetly know
Salvation's of the Lord ;
That death is sin's reward.
342 The Day of Judgment. 8.7.4.
Hark! the trumpet's awful sound,
How the summons
Robed in dreadful majesty ;
Rise to life from earth and sea ;
Loved and served the Lord below,
You for ever
343 What will ye do ? (Isa. X. 3.)
Who still your mad career pursue ;
And comes in wrath, what will ye do? 2 Say, have you made this world your choice?
Is this the all you have in view ?
• In that dread day what will ye do ?' 3 Ah! see this most tremendous day
Of visitation hastes to you ;
Without a heart made clean and new,
And in that day what will ye do?
And bring your sins to sad review;
And in that day what will ye do? 344 Day of Judgment.
1 And will the Judge descend ?
And must the dead arise?
His all-discerning eyes ?
The terrors of that day,
Astonished, shrink away ?
3 But, ere that trumpet shakes
The mansions of the dead,
What joyfuị tidings spread !
Whose wrath they cannot bear, Fly to the shelter of His cross,
And find salvation there.
8.7. 1 YE that die without repentance,
Ye must rise when Christ appears,
While the saints rejoice in theirs :
They with Jesus Christ to reign ;
OPENING SCHOOL. 346 Prayer for the School. S.M.
1 SHINE on our Sabbath school,
Thou God of mercy, shine !
The hand that gives is Thine.
Do Thou their labours own ;
From Thee, and Thee alone.
O may Thy grace impart
To each a mind to understand,
And a believing heart !
Nor let Thy favour cease ;
And all Thy paths are peace.
C.M. 1 ONCE more we keep the sacred day
That saw the Saviour rise ;
To Him that rules the skies.
That are to Jesus due !
And how they perish too !
And thus far led us on,
To know and love His Son !
To read Thy heavenly Word ;
And make us Thine, O Lord. 348 Blessings Implored. L. M. 1 ASSEMBLED in our school once more,
O Lord, Thy blessing we implore ;
And crown our studies with success;
