Sinner’s Song

Heaven, throne of pure and glorious;

Holy, holy blinding stream of light.

Who shall stand before the righteous judge?

All are shadows, spilled, before His sight.

 

Holy, holy blinding stream of light–

Fire consumes the wretched dross to dust.

All are shadows, spilled, before His sight;

Darkness sullies all we touch with rust.

 

Fire consumes the wretched dross to dust,

Clouds of wrath make sun to flee like moth.

Darkness sullies all we touch with rust–

Upright deeds become as filthy cloth.

 

Clouds of wrath make sun to flee like moth.

What is this? The Pure takes up my sin,

Upright deeds (become as filthy rags)–

All is nailed and reckoned unto Him.

 

What is this? The Pure takes up my sin?

I am free; the judgement’s meted out–

All is nailed and reckoned unto Him.

His righteousness is writ to my account.

 

I am free; the judgement’s meted out.

Fitted now to stand before God’s throne:

(His righteousness is writ to my account)

Receiver of God’s gift and made His own

 

Who shall stand before the righteous Judge.

Heaven, throne of Pure and glorious!
