When frowning death appears

Full Text

1 When frowning death appears,
And points his fatal dart,
What dark foreboding fears
Distract the sinner's heart!
The dreadful blow
No arm can stay,
But torn away
He sinks to wo.

2 Now every hope denied,
Bereft of every good,
He must the wrath abide
Of an avenging God;
No mercy there
Will greet his ear
Nor wipe the tear
Of black despair.

3 Sinners, awake, attend,
And flee the wrath to come;
Make Christ, the Judge, your friend,
And heav'n shall be your home:
His mercy nigh,
Now points the path
That leads from death
To joys on high.

Lee, Richard. Said to have been "a laborious mechanic," and "a political and religious fanatic," contributed several hymns to the Evangelical Magazine, 1793, 1794, which were signed "Ebenezer," and dated from "Leicester Fields, London." In 1794 he published Flowers from Sharon. From this work the hymns, "When I view my Saviour bleeding" (Good Friday), and "See the Captain of Salvation" (Ascension), are taken. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
