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.

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.
