The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

HYMN 154 Self-righteousness insufficient.

L. M.

Self-righteousness insufficient.

|Where are the mourners,| saith the Lord,

|That wait and tremble at my word,

That walk in darkness all the day?

Come, make my name your trust and stay.

[|No works nor duties of your own

Can for the smallest sin atone

The robes that nature may provide

Will not your least pollutions hide.

|The softest couch that nature knows

Can give the conscience no repose;

Look to my righteousness and live;

Comfort and peace are mine to give.]

|Ye sons of pride, that kindle coals

With your own hands, to warm your souls

Walk in the light of your own fire,

Enjoy the sparks that ye desire:

|This is your portion at my hands; --

Hell waits you with her iron bands;

Ye shall lie down in sorrow there,

In death, in darkness, and despair.|
