Representative Text

1 Heaven has confirmed the great decree,
That Adam's race mus die:
One general ruin sweeps them down,
And low in dust they lie.

The solemn purport weigh;
For know, that heaven or hell depends
On that important day.

Must wake the Judge to see,
And every word, and every thought
Must pass his scrutiny.

5 O may I in the Judge behold
My Savior and my Friend,
And far beyond the reach of death,
With all his saints ascend.
