     1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

     4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.(KJV)

1. Lo, many shall come from the East and the West 
And sit at the feast of salvation 
With Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the blest, 
Obeying the Lord’s invitation. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

2. But they who have always resisted His grace 
And on their own virtue depended 
Shall then be condemned and cast out from His face, 
Eternally lost and unfriended. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

3. Oh, may we all hear when our Shepherd doth call 
In accents persuasive and tender, 
That, while there is time, we make haste, one and all, 
And find Him, our mighty Defender! 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

4. Oh, that we the throng of the ransomed may swell, 
To whom He hath granted remission! 
God graciously make us in heaven to dwell 
And save us from endless perdition. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

5. God grant that I may of His infinite love 
Remain in His merciful keeping 
And sit with the King at His table above 
When here in the grave I am sleeping. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

6. All trials are then like a dream that is past, 
Forgotten all trouble and sorrow; 
All questions and doubts have been answered at last; 
Then dawneth eternity’s morrow. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus! 

7. The heavens shall ring with an anthem more grand 
Than ever on earth was recorded; 
The blest of the Lord shall receive at His hand 
The crown to the victors awarded. 
Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!
