Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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

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.
