Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1841

Hymn 221
1. That awful day will surely come,
Th' appointed hour makes haste,
When I must stand before my Judge,
And pass the solemn test.

2. Thou lovely Chief of all my joys—
Thou Sov'reign of my heart—
How could I bear to hear thy voice
Pronounce the word—"Depart."

3. Oh! wretched state of deep despair,
To see my God remove,
And fix my doleful station where
I must not taste his love.

4. Oh! tell me that my worthless name
Is graven on thy hands;
Show me some promise in thy book,
Where my salvation stands.
