When, With His Angels, the Son of God Comes

When, with his angels, the Son of God comes; takes a seat upon the throne,

Nations will gather for Jesus’ judgment, separating sheep from goats.

—–

When I was hungry, you came and fed me. 

When thirsted, gave me drink.  

When I was lonely, I found you friendly. 

Sick in jail, you visited.

—–

Righteous will answer, “That wasn’t you, Lord. Those were women and some men.”

The Lord will thank them for all the actions, that they did, for all his kin. 

—–

When I was hungry, you came and fed me. 

When thirsted, gave me drink.  

When I was lonely, I found you friendly. 

Sick in jail, you visited.

—–

Others will argue, they were unknowing. So they’re free, from any sin.

Jesus will answer, his steady presence, with the poor, who needed them.

—–

When I was hungry, you came and fed me. 

When thirsted, gave me drink.  

When I was lonely, I found you friendly. 

Sick in jail, you visited.

—–

Sisters and brothers, a day is coming, there is yet time to respond.

Reach out to Jesus, helping the needy, here in this town and beyond.

—–

When I was hungry, you came and fed me. 

When thirsted, gave me drink.  

When I was lonely, I found you friendly. 

Sick in jail, you visited.
