When Christ Ascends His Judgment ThroneDon 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!
