And must I be to judgment bro't,
And answer in that day,
For ev'ry vain and idle thought,
And ev'ry word I say?
Thou awful Judge of quick and dead,
The watchful pow’r bestow;
So shall I to my ways take heed,
To all I speak or do.
If now Thou standest at the door,
O let me feel Thee near!
And make my peace with God, before
I at Thy bar appear.
