Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

26. Weighed in the Balance

1 Weighed in the balance of justice true,
Sinful the path thou hast trod;
Weighed and found wanting—will it be you?
Weighed by the word of God.

Refrain:
Weighed and found wanting,
Weighed and found wanting,
Rejected at heaven’s door.

2 There it will hurt like a wounding dart
When this dread answer shall fall:
“Weighed and found wanting”; ’twill pierce thy heart
At the last judgment call. [Refrain]

3 Weighed by the word which is given now,
Search it and know thou art pure;
Unto its mandates in meekness bow,
Then thou shalt be secure. [Refrain]

4 At the tribunal where Christ is judge,
Where every deed is made known,
“Weighed and found wanting” each guilty soul
Stands there before His throne. [Refrain]
