1 "Where are the Mourners (saith the Lord)
"That wait and tremble at my Word,
"That walk in Darkness all the Day?
"Come, make my Name your Trust and Stay.
2 "No Works nor Duties of your own
"Can for the smallest Sin atone
"The Robes that Nature may provide
"Will not your least Pollutions hide.
3 "The softest Couch that Nature knows
"Can give the Conscience no Repose;
"Look to my Righteousness, and live;
"Comfort and Peace are mine to give.
4 "Ye Sons of Pride, that kindle Coals
"With your own Hands to warm your Souls,
"Walk in the Light of your own Fire,
"Enjoy the Sparks that ye desire.
5 "This is your Portion at my Hands;
"Hell waits you with her Iron Bands;
"Ye shall lye down in Sorrow there,
"In Death, in Darkness, and despair.
