Hymn/Song Information

TIME OF GENERAL SICKNESS




The Lord in judgment now appears,
And spreads his wrath abroad;
Sinners are filled with boding fears,
By righteous vengeance awed.


Seized by inveterate disease,
What crowds of victims fall;
Unsparing death relentless preys,
Nor spares the great or small.


Lord, we our sin and guilt confess,
Yet mercy would implore:
To mitigate our sore distress,
Display thy mighty power.


Say, ‘tis enough —and give command,
Disease shall then retire,
And rosy health revive our land,
Now trembling at thine ire.


If this too great a favour seem,
Lord, bow our wills to thine;
Thou still thy chosen wilt redeem,
And give them life divine.
