1 When Christ to judgment shall descend,
And saints surround their Lord,
He calls the nations to attend,
And hear his awful word.
2 “Not for the want of bullocks slain
Will I the world reprove;
Altars and rites, and forms are vain,
Without the fire of love.
3 And what have hypocrites to do
To bring their sacrifice?
They call my statutes just and true,
But deal in theft and lies.
4 Could you expect to ’scape my sight,
And sin without control;
But I shall bring your crimes to light,
With anguish in your soul."
5 Consider ye, that slight the Lord,
Before his wrath appear;
If once you fall beneath his sword,
There’s no deliv'rer there.
