Hymn/Song Information

My former hopes are fled My terror now begins




My former hopes are dead,
My terror now begins;
I feel, alas! that I am dead
In trespasses and sins.


Ah, whither shall I fly?
I hear the thunder roar
The law proclaims destruction nigh,
And vengeance at the door.


When I review my ways,
I dread impending doom;
But sure, a friendly whisper says,
“Flee from the wrath to come.”


I see, or think I see,
A glimmering from afar;
A beam of day that shines for me,
To save me from despair.


Fore–runner of the sun,
It marks the Pilgrim’s way;
I’ll gaze upon it while I run,
And watch the rising day.


---Alternative verses---


My former hopes are fled,
My terror now begins;
I feel, alas! that I am dead
In trespasses and sins.
