Hymn/Song Information

PUBLIC FAST




See, gracious Lord, before thy throne,
Thy mourning people bend!
'Tis on thy sovereign grace alone.
Our humble hopes depend.


Tremendous judgements, from thy hand.
Thy dreadful powers display;
Yet mercy spares this guilty land.
And still we live to pray.


How changed, alas! are truths divine.
For error, guilt, and shame!
What impious numbers, bold in sin,
Disgrace the Christian name.


O turn us, turn us, mighty Lord,
By thy resistless grace;
Then shall our hearts obey thy word,
And humbly seek thy face.


Then, should insulting foes invade,
We shall not sink in fear;
Secure of never failing aid,
When God, our God, is near.


---Alternative verses---


Dark, frowning judgements, from thy hand.
Thy dreadful power display;
Yet mercy spares this guilty land.
And still we live to pray.
