Arlington

C.M.

Dr. Arne

1.

And must I be to judgment brought,

And answer in that day

For every vain and idle thought,

And every word I say?

2.

Yes, every secret of my heart

Shall shortly be made known,

And I receive my just desert

For all that I have done.

3.

How careful, then, ought I to live,

With what religious fear!

Who such a strict account must give

For my behavior here.

4.

Thou awful Judge of quick and dead,

The watchful power bestow;

So shall I to my ways take heed,

To all I speak or do.

5.

If now thou standest at the door,

O let me feel thee near;

And make my peace with God, before

I at the thy bar appear.
