8199. Lord, When Thy Hand Is Lifted Up

1 Lord, when Thy hand is lifted up,
The wicked shall not see:
But they shall see with glowing shame,
Though they obdurate be.

2 How few the weighty stroke regard,
And seek their Maker’s face!
In vain may Providence correct,
If not enforced by grace.

3 Exert Thy mighty influence, Lord,
And melt the stony breast;
Then shall Thy justice be adored,
Thy mercy stand confessed.

4 The scorner then shall mourn in dust,
And put his sins away,
No more resist his Maker’s hands,
But lift his own to pray.
