Lyrics

The term Beam Seat comes from the ancient Olympics in Greece, where a judge would sit at the finish line and determine the winners. In 1 Corinthians 3, the apostle Paul explains that Jesus will metaphorically sit in the Bema Seat and reward His followers based on what we do with our new lives.
When our labors all retire
There will be a trial by fire
Will your treasure pass the test
Or will it burn up with the rest?

You may build upon a sure foundation
With your building in dilapidation
When it all comes down to rubble
Will it be wood, hay, or stubble?

Or precious stones, gold and silver
Are you really sure?

And we all will stand at the Bema Seat
All will be revealed
It will be complete
Will there be reward in the fiery heat
When we see our lives at the Bema Seat?

Every talent will be surely counted
Every word will have to be accounted
Not a story will be left untold
We will stand and watch the truth unfold

Every score will be evened
Nothing to defend

When we all will stand at the Bema Seat
All will be revealed
It will be complete
Will there be reward in the fiery heat
When we see our lives at the Bema Seat?

Every building will be shaken
Every motive will be tried
He'll give reward to the faithful
Will you receive or be denied?

And we all will stand at the Bema Seat
All will be revealed
It will be complete
Will there be reward in the fiery heat
When we see our lives at the Bema Seat?
