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 Judgement,
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?



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 His throne?

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?



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.

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?



Thus living with hearts fixed on Jesus,
In patience we wait for the time
When, the days of our pilgrimage ended,
We’ll rest in his presence Divine.

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?
