10404. A Dread And Solemn Hour

1 A dread and solemn hour
To us is drawing near;
When we before the throne of God
All present shall appear.

2 What answer shall we give,
When God Himself demands
The uses of such times as these,
In judgment at our hands?

3 And must we then confess
That all was spent in vain
The seasons that were once our own,
But cannot be again?

4 This will be dark indeed;
To regions of despair
Our own neglect will sink us down,
To mourn forever there.
