How Will My Heart Endure

How will my heart endure
The terrors of that day,
When earth and heaven before His face
Astonish’d shrink away?

But ere the trumpet shakes
The mansions of the dead,
Hark! from the Gospel’s cheering sound
What joyful tidings spread.

Ye sinners, seek His grace,
Whose wrath ye cannot bear;
Fly to the shelter of His Cross,
And find salvation there.

So shall that curse remove,
By which the Saviour bled;
And the last awful day shall pour
His blessings on your head.

Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America,
