Huntington 193

Tune: Justin Morgan, 1790
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1719
Meter: Long Meter Double (8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8)
Lord, what a thoughtless wretch was I
To mourn and murmur and repine;
To see the wicked placed on high,
In pride and robes of honor shine.
But, O, their end, their dreadful end!
Thy sanctuary taught me so,
On slipp’ry rocks I see them stand,
And fiery billows roll below.
