On Judgment Day
Dedicated to my Brother in Christ Larry Livingston
There is a day
That is not too far away
When the clouds shall part
And in every man’s heart fear shall start.
Because on that day all shall see
Jesus the Lord coming on the billowy sea
Our hearts will tremble and be filled with despair
Because everyone will know that this judgment will be fair.
The Judge has come and many will try to flee
The Wrath of Ages in His eyes all shall see
All will come on bended knee
And tremble at what they will see.
Lord Jesus on the Judgment throne
And oh how the worldly will groan.
As He says I never knew you
For you had no part of me
All that worshipped self I never knew you
Depart from me and go to that fiery sea.
Those who served their wants
Never giving a thought to what I want
Even though now you declare me on bended knee
You too must depart from me and go to that fiery sea.
Those who were deceived
You also must go to that fiery sea.
All through life my Spirit called
But you refused so now you too must accept the fall.
A whole world must groan
As my Lord sat upon His throne
People cried Lord, Lord I did this and that in your name
And Jesus said doing what you wanted was not the same
Your works have been tried in the fire
And you were not worthy of your hire
For those who truly serve me
They also lived their life for me.
Now you too must spend eternity in that fiery sea
Forever separated from me.
How many chances did you have to answer the Spirit’s call
How many times were you told of Jesus’ paying it all
How many times did you refuse the call
Now you also must face the fall
Now you must go and seethe
For in hell there will be wailing and nashing of teeth
Why oh why did I refuse the Spirit’s call
Oh why did I choose the fall
The fault is mine and mine alone
Because I refused to atone.
