When Thou Shalt Come O Lord


When Thou shalt come, O Lord,
Wrapt in Thy glory bright,
Then shall the earth in terror quake,
The sun withhold his light.

When Thou shalt come, O Lord,
Then to Thy judgment-bar,
Even as a mighty stream, shall flow
The sons of men from far.

When Thou shalt come, O Lord,
Then save me by Thy power;
Let not the flames of wrath o’ertake
Thy servant in that hour.

When Thou shalt come, O Lord,
In mercy let me stand–
No guilt upon my conscience laid–
Approved, at Thy right hand.
