            HYMN.

                  C. M.

Bless God the work is on the move,
We see it with our eyes,
Our hearts are burning with his love,
The Circuit now does rise.

Sinners are crying out aloud,
O ! sirs, what must we do;
The Lord is coming to our help,
The glory's going through.

The devil tempts us to give o'er,
And wicked men despise ;
This only makes us pray the more,
For the Circuit still to rise.

If we oppose the devil's cause,
He'll aim at me, and you ;
But Jesus to our help is come,
The glory must go through.

The word of God we do believe,
In every part is true;
T'is only ask and then receive,
The glory shall go through.

                           THE

               Great Day.

The day is fast approaching, approaching,
approaching,
The day is fast approaching, the judgment day.

                        CHORUS.

Ah, then poor sinners you can't stand the fire,
No you can't stand the fire on that great day.

The trumpet shall be sounded, be sounded, be
sounded
The trumpet shall be sounded on that great day.

The graves shall be opened, be opened, be
opened
The graves shall be opened on that great day.

The dead shall then be raised, be raised, be
raised
The dead shall then be raised on that great day.

You'll see the world a burning, a burning, a
burning
You'll see the world a burning on that great day.

You'll see the lightning flashing, flashing, flashing
You'll see the lightning flashing on that great day

You'll hear the thunders rolling, rolling, rolling,
You'll hear the thunders rolling on that great day.

You'll see the judge descending, descending,
descending,
You'll see the judge descending on that great day.

You'd better be converted, converted, converted,
You'd better be converted against that day.

You'd better be made holy, holy, holy,
You'd better be made holy against that day.

                  CHORUS.

So then poor sinners you may stand the fire,
O you may stand the fire on that great day.
