Hymn/Song Information

Raise thoughtless sinner raise thine eye




Raise, thoughtless sinner, raise thine eye:
Behold God's balance lifted high!
There shall his justice be displayed,
And there thy hope and life be weigh'd.


See in one scale his perfect law;
Mark with what force its precepts draw:
Wouldst thou the awful test sustain?
Thy works how light! thy thoughts how vain!


Behold, the hand of God appears
T trace in dreadful characters:
"Sinner thy soul is wanting found,
And wrath shall smite thee to the ground."


Let sudden fear thy nerves unbrace;
Let horror change thy guilty face;
Thro' all thy thoughts let anguish roll,
Till deep repentance melt thy soul.


One only hope may yet prevail;
Christ hath a weight to turn the scale;
Still doth the gospel publish peace,
And show a Saviour's righteousnes.


Great God, exert thy power to save
Deep on the heart these truths engrave;
The pond'rous load of guilt remove,
That trembling lips may sing thy love.
