466                     The Book of Praise.
The day of grace is past and gone ; They shake before the Judge's throne, All unprepared to meet Him.
Stay, fancy, stay, and close thy wings,
Repress thy flight too daring! One wondrous sight my comfort brings,
The Judge my nature wearing. Beneath His cross I view the day When Heaven and Earth shall pass away, And thus prepare to meet Him.
William Bengo Co I Iyer. 1812. {First stanza Anon, from Bartholo?new Ringwald?)
That day of wrath, that dreadful day When heaven and earth shall pass away, What power shall be the sinner's stay ? How shall he meet that dreadful day ?
When, shrivelling like a parched scroll, The flaming heavens together roll; When louder yet, and yet more dread, Swells the high trump that wakes the dead ;
O ! on that day, that wrathful day, When man to judgment wakes from clay, Be Thou the trembling sinner's stay, Though heaven and earth shall pass away !
Sir Walter Scott. 1805.
