14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.(KJV)

The Day Is Surely Drawing Near

1. The day is surely drawing near 
When God’s Son, the Anointed, 
Shall with great majesty appear 
As Judge of all appointed. 
All mirth and laughter then shall cease 
When flames on flames will still increase, 
As Scripture truly teacheth. 

2. A trumpet loud shall then resound 
And all the earth be shaken. 
Then all who in their graves are found 
Shall from their sleep awaken; 
But all that live shall in that hour 
By the Almighty’s boundless pow’r 
Be changed at His commanding. 

3. A book is opened then to all, 
A record truly telling 
What each hath done, both great and small, 
When he on earth was dwelling; 
And ev’ry heart be clearly seen, 
And all be known as they have been 
In tho’ts and words and actions. 

4. Then woe to those who scorned the Lord 
And sought but carnal pleasures, 
Who here despised His precious Word 
And loved their earthly treasures! 
With shame and trembling they will stand 
And at the Judge’s stern command 
To Satan be delivered. 

5. O Jesus, who my debt didst pay 
And for my sin wast smitten, 
Within the Book of Life, oh, may 
My name be also written! 
I will not doubt; I trust in Thee, 
From Satan Thou hast made me free 
And from all condemnation. 

6. Therefore my Intercessor be 
And for Thy blood and merit 
Declare my name from judgment free 
With all who life inherit, 
That I may see Thee face to face 
With all Thy saints in that blest place 
Which Thou for us hast purchased. 

7. O Jesus Christ, do not delay, 
But hasten our salvation; 
We often tremble on our way 
In fear and tribulation. 
Then hear us when we cry to Thee; 
Come, mighty Judge, and make us free 
From every evil! Amen.
