Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
First Line: When Jesus shall gather the nations,
When Jesus shall gather the nations
Before Him at last to appear,
Oh, how shall we stand in the Judgment,
When summoned our sentence to hear ?
He will gather the wheat in His garner,
But the chaff will He scatter away;
Then how shall we stand in the Judgment—
Oh, how shall we stand in that day ?
2 Shall we hear from the lips of the Saviour
The words, “Faithful servant, well done !”
Or, trembling with fear and with anguish,
Be banished away from is throne ?
3 Then let us be watching and waiting—
Our lamps burning steady and bright—
That when we are called by the Bridegroom,
We'll answer the call with delight.
4 Thus living with hearts fixed on Jesus,
In patience we wait for the time
When the days of our pilgrimage
We'll rest in His presence divine.
