Representative Text

1 Weighed by thy love for thy brother,
Weighed by thy love for thy God,
Weighed by thy faith in another,
Weighed by the shedding of blood.

Refrain:
Weighed in the balance, and wanting,
Weighed, but no Savior is there;
Weighed, but thy soul has been trifling,
Weighed, but found lighter than air.

2 Weighed by the hope of salvation,
Weighed by the Rock where ’tis built,
Weighed by the sweet invitation,
“Come, even now, if thou wilt.” [Refrain]

3 Weighed by the richest of treasures,
Weighed by their infinite loss,
Weighed by the brightest of pleasures,
Weighed by the dark, heavy cross. [Refrain]
