When Thou, my righteous Judge shall come
To take Thy ransomed people home,
Shall I among them stand?
Shall such a worthless worm as I,
Who sometimes am afraid to die,
Be found at Thy right hand!

I love to meet among them now,
Before Thy gracious feet to bow,
Though vilest of them all:
But can I bear the piercing thought?
What if my name should be left out,
When Thou for them shalt call!

Prevent, prevent it by Thy grace;
Be Thou, dear Lord, my hiding place,
In this, th'accepted day:
Thy pardoning voice, O, let me hear,
To still my unbelieving fear,
Nor let me fall, I pray.

Let me among Thy saints be found
Whene'er the archangel's trump shall sound,
To see Thy smiling face;
Then loudest of the crowd I'll sing,
While heavens resounding mansions ring,
With shouts of sovereign grace.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture.
