Passing Away 207b

Tune: John A. Watson, 1872
Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1763
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
And must I be to judgment broít,
And answer in that day
For evíry vain and idle thoít
And evíry word I say?

Chorus:

We are passing away
To that great judgment day.

Yes, evíry secret of my heart
Shall shortly be made known;
And I receive my just desert
For all that I have done.

(Chorus)

How careful, then, ought I to be;
With what religious fear,
Who such a strict account must give
For my behavior here.

(Chorus)
