Will it come, the Day of God, when the curse shall be removed?/Will it bring the vengeful rod or the voice of the Beloved?
Sure as the eternal throne stands the promise of His Word/He shall make His glory known; all mankind shall hail Him Lord.
God’s long-suffering standeth still, mercy pleading with the foe/But who shall resist His will when He lets His fury go?
Burning like a furnace flame, fed by wrath that cannot spare/See the glory of His name rising, spreading everywhere.
Oh, before that awful day, let our dark rebellion cease/Let us meet Him in the way, and His coming shall be peace.
From: “Day of God” by Francis Bottome (1823-1894), English-born American Methodist Episcopalian hymn-writer
