Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

285. And must I be to judgment brought

1.
And must I be to judgment brought,
And answer in that day
For every vain and idle thought,
And every word I say?

2.
Yes, every secret of my heart
Shall shortly be made known,
And I receive my just desert
For all that I have done.

3.
How careful, then, ought I to live,
With what religious fear!
Who such a strict account must give
For my behavior here.

4.
Thou awful Judge of quick and dead,
The watchful power bestow;
So shall I to my ways take heed,
To all I speak or do.

5.
If now thou standest at the door,
O let me feel thee near;
And make my peace with God, before
I at the thy bar appear.
