The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

HYMN 107 The everlasting absence of God intolerable.

C. M.

The everlasting absence of God intolerable.

That awful day will surely come,

Th' appointed hour makes haste,

When I must stand before my Judge,

And pass the solemn test.

Thou lovely chief of all my joys,

Thou sovereign of my heart!

How could I bear to hear thy voice

Pronounce the sound, |Depart!|

[The thunder of that dismal word

Would so torment my ear,

'Twould tear my soul asunder, Lord,

With most tormenting fear.]

[What! to be banished from my life,

And yet forbid to die!

To linger in eternal pain,

Yet death for ever fly!]

O, wretched state of deep despair!

To see my God remove,

And fix my doleful station where

I must not taste his love.

Jesus, I throw my arms around,

And hang upon thy breast;

Without a gracious smile from thee

My spirit cannot rest.

O, tell me that my worthless name

Is graven on thy hands;

Show me some promise in thy book

Where my salvation stands!

[Give me one kind assuring word

To sink my fears again,

And cheerfully my soul shall wait

Her threescore years and ten.]
