Dread Sinai roars, the man be curst

Dread Sinai roars, the man be curst

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Dread Sinai roars, "the man be cursed,
That doth one willful sin commit:
Death and damnation fro the first
Without relief, and infinite."

2 Thus flames the mount! and round the earth
Thunder, and fire, and vengeance flings:
But, Jesus, thy dear gasping breath,
And Calvary say gentler things:

3 "Pardon, and grace, and boundless love,
Streaming along a Savior's blood,
And life, and joys, and crowns above,
Obtained by a dear bleeding God."

4 Hark, how he prays (the charming sound
Dwells on his dying lips)"forgive;"
And every groan and gasping wound
Cries, "Father, let the rebels live."

5 Go, you that rest upon the law,
And toil, and seek salvation there,
Look to the flame that Moses saw,
And shrink, and tremble, and despair.

6 But I'll retire beneath the cross,
Savior, at thy dear feet I lie;
And the keen sword that Justice draws,
Flaming and red, shall pass me by.
