The Arbiter *1
Day of judgment! Day of wonders!
Hark! the trumpet’s awful sound,
Louder than a thousand thunders,
Shakes the vast creation round
How the summons will the sinner’s heart confound!
The dead awaken,
Rise to life from earth and sea;
All the powers of nature shaken
By One look, prepares to flee.
Careless sinner, what will then become of thee?
Horrors, past imagination,
Will surprise your trembling heart,
When you hear your condemnation,
“Hence, accursed wretch, depart!
Thou, with Snake and slithering tongue, have thy part!” *2
