We will see the Lord descend,
With myriads of stars,
To bring His justice in the end,
Of each ungodly heart:
The rebels, revelers-in-sin,
Are cast to outer-dark.
So in this climax of His plan,
If you would walk with Him,
Believe what He’s revealed to man,
Turn holiness from sin.
By faith you live and seek His plan,
And you’ll bring joy to Him.
So seek out every word He said,
And search His scriptures well.
And learn to know Him as your head,
Call out those who rebel.
Mark how He keeps each promise said,
How we are saved from Hell.
Hold to the promise we hope in,
Which can not be bended or broken.
Relentlessly hold the confession,
For it’s your most costly possession.
The One who has promised is certain,
And nothing can ever deter Him.
Take cognizance of one another,
To aid in defending your brother.
Unto Godly righteousness guiding,
Not shirking, forsaking, or hiding.
Exhort to the truth ever clearer,
As God’s day of judgment grows nearer.
If you willingly sin not believing,
Though a full knowledge you are receiving,
You’ve forsaken the grace you were given,
There’s no sacrifice left to be given.
But there’s fire prepared for the scoffer,
And wrath that is whetted to slaughter.
Oh tremble before Jesus’ anger!
His judgment is dreadful in danger.
His hands which will harrow the nation,
Are our only hope of salvation:
By those hands every rebel will perish,
By those hands we are lovingly cherished.
There is a soil which receives the rain,
(God’s common grace for good and evil men)
And bears the proper bounty God intends,
That those maintaining it will be sustained.
Yet if it gives out burrs and blighted grain,
It will incur a curse, and in the end,
That field is fed to fire’s full extent,
To purify, prepared to plant again.
Yet we have confidence in you;
For you have loved the Lord’s anointed saints,
And in the name of Christ without complaints,
You served these saints with wealth, and words, and food.
So cultivate a confidence in this:
When Jesus’ love with in your heart endures,
Then know that your salvation stands secure;
He won’t relinquish any fruit that’s His.
