11.8.

1
If Jesus should come to our meeting today,
To call out the Christians by name,
O how we should listen to what He would say!
How solemn the moments would seem!

2
He’d know who they were, for He searches the heart;
We could not the Saviour deceive;
O who are the ones that He’d call out apart?
And who are the ones He would leave?

3
Yet Jesus is here, though His form is unseen,
His eye is on each of us now;
He knows who has truly sought pardon for sin,
And longs the dear Saviour to know.

4
His angels are coming like reapers some day,
To sever the tares from the wheat,
And carry God’s children in safety away,
Their loving Redeemer to meet.
