When Christ Ascends His Judgment Throne — Don Fortner
(Tune: #268 — My Faith has Found a Resting Place — CMD )
1. When Christ ascends His judgment throne,
And bids all worlds draw near;
MenŐs hearts shall melt, with sighs and groans;
And trembling souls shall fear. —
Then as the solemn, opened books
Disclose the dreadful day;
JehovahŐs frowns and angry looks
Will wicked souls dismay.
2. Omniscience will, with truth, expose
Their secret thoughts to view;
Their crimes GodŐs justice will expose,
And conscience own them true.
GodŐs wrath shall seize the guilty souls
Of unconverted men,
While all GodŐs books, the judgment scrolls,
Accuse, convince, condemn!
3. But, there in JesusŐ gracious hand,
The Book of Life is placed.
The names of His elect there stand,
Nor can they be erased!
As He unfolds the sacred seals,
With GodŐs decrees all done,
With one decisive word, He will
Welcome His ransomed home!
