What Shall Our Answer Be?

When we in the judgment stand,
In that mighty company,
And the Judge shall question us,
Oh, what shall our answers be?
What for every trifling thought,
And each idle word we say?
What for every sinful act
We may do from day to day?

Refrain

When that awful day we see,
Oh, what shall our answers be?
When that awful day we see,
Oh, what shall our answers be?

When the Lord has gathered there,
From the land and from the sea,
All the families of men,
Oh, what shall our answers be?
What for all our want of faith,
What for all our lack of love?
Can we hope a crown to gain,
And a mansion bright above?

Refrain

Lord, it is a solemn thought,
That we must account to Thee!
In that great and awful day,
What shall our poor answers be?
Oh, prepare us, Lord, we pray,
In Thy presence there to stand!
Purge us from each sinful blot;
Place us, Lord, on Thy right hand!

Refrain

"[11] And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
[12] And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
[13] And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
[14] And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
[15] And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Rev. 20:11-15
