THE DAY OF THE LORD
by John R Ecob
(Herald of Hope - Australia)
The day of God's anger is the day of the Lord
A day of thick darkness when wrath is outpoured
A day of dark clouds and infinite gloom
A day of remorse and terrible doom.
The day of the Lord has been in the past
When God's patience with Israel had run out at last
The Babylonians descend just like a cloud
The Temple and city were levelled and ploughed.
But worse is to come in days just ahead
The horsemen are mounted, white, black and red
The pale horse too will introduce death
In the day of the Lord the words of God's breath.
The Great Tribulation is what we are told
Is poured out by heaven as judgments unfold
The Lamb on the throne has taken the book
The seals will be broken and heaven can look.
The day of God's anger is the wrath of the Lamb
When into the caves and holes men will cram
And cry to the rocks, Fall down on us now!
Every mouth must confess Him and every knee bow!
Oh, how can we know when this day will come
What sign has been given, please tell me the sum
The thief in the night will catch up from earth
The blood-washed redeemed who've had second birth
When loved ones are missing, the rich and the poor
You'll know by the clothes they've left on the floor
Then, only then, will you know your sad fate
You?ll cry out with fear - you've left it too late.
Oh, enter the door of God?s mercy and love
Be ready for Jesus who comes from above
Repent and believe His mercy is free
He paid all your debt on mount Calvary
But can I be sure of God's marvellous grace
That one day I'll look on His glorious face
Yes, Yes you can know, be certain and sure
His Word gives His promise of life evermore.
My doubts are all gone I'm looking above
My Saviour is coming in infinte love
In a moment of time He'll take home His Bride
The trumpet will sound, I won't need to hide.
And so shall I be forever with Him
Though now my poor vision of Him may be dim
Then in God's presence and glorious light
My eyes shall behold Him - Oh wonderful sight.
