In the sun, and moon, and stars,
Signs and wonders have appeared;
Earth has groaned with bloody wars,
And the hearts of men have feared.
Soon shall oceanís hoary deep,
Tossed with stronger tempests, rise;
Darker storms the mountain sweep,
Fiercer lightning rend the skies.
Dread alarms shall shake the proud,
Pale amazement, restless fear;
And, amid the thunder-cloud,
Shall the Judge of men appear.
But, though from His awful face,
Heaven shall fade, and earth shall fly,
Fear not, ye, His chosen race,
Your redemption draweth nigh.
