Hymn/Song Information

RICH MAN AND LAZARUS




In what confusion earth appears:
Godís dearest children bathíd in tears;
While they who heaven itself deride,
Riot in luxury and pride.


But patient let my soul attend,
And ere I censure, view the end :
That end, how diff'rent, who can tell
The wide extremes of heaven and hell?


See the red flames around him twine,
Who did in gold and purple shine!
Nor can his tongue one drop obtain,
T` allay the scorching of his pain.


While round the saint, so poor below,
Full rivers of salvation flow ;
On Abrahímís breast he learns his head,
And banquets on celestial bread.


Jesus, my Lord, let me appear
The meanest of my servants here;
So that at length I may but taste
The blessings of thy marriage feast.
