Hymn/Song Information

The gathering clouds with aspect dark




The gathering clouds,
with aspect dark,
A rising storm presage;
O! to be hid within the ark,
And sheltered from its rage!


See the commissioned
angel frown!
That vial in his hand,
Filled with fierce wrath,
is pouring down
Upon our guilty land!


Ye saints, unite
in wrestling prayer;
If yet there may be hope;
Who knows but Mercy
yet may spare,
And bid the angel stop!


Already is the plague begun,
And fired with hostile rage;
Brethren, by blood and interest one,
With brethren now engage.


Peace spreads her wings,
prepared for flight,
And war, with flaming sword,
And hasty strides
draws nigh, to fight
The battles of the Lord.


The first alarm, alas, how few,
While distant, seem to hear!
But they will hear, and tremble too,
When God shall send it near.


So thunder, oíer the distant hills,
Gives but a murmíring sound,
But as the tempest spreads, it fills,
And makes the welkin sound.


May we, at least, with one consent,
Fall low before the throne
With tears the nationís sins lament,
The churches, and our own.


The humble souls
who mourn and pray,
The Lord approves and knows;
His mark secures them in the day
When vengeance strikes his foes.
