Representative Text

1 Account me worthy, Lord, I pray,
To stand before Thy Son,
Should He from heaven descend today,
Or ere the night is done.

Refrain:
To stand before Thy Son!
To stand before Thy Son!
Account me worthy, Lord, I pray,
To stand before Thy Son!

2 A hope of seeing Him have I,
Of being like Him, too;
Then, search and purge and purify—
Yea, cleanse me thro’ and thro’. [Refrain]

3 My righteousness before His face
Is naught but guilt and shame;
No wedding robe but Calv’ry’s grace
Can bear His eyes of flame. [Refrain]

4 O, may I watch, my garments keep,
Lest when the trump shall should,
Awaking from a slothful sleep,
Unclothed I shall be found. [Refrain]

5 Let me be hidden in that hour
When, o’er the startled earth,
The tribulation wrath-clouds lower,
And break in death and dearth. [Refrain]

6 As branch abides within the vine,
May I in Christ, alone;
And confidence shall then be mine
When He receives His own. [Refrain]
