This is a hymn by Charles Wesley from the Sacred Harp Hymnal (an American Shape Note Hymnal).


Tune: John A. Watson, 1872
Words: Charles Wesley, 1763
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
And must I be to judgment brought,
And answer in that day
For ev’ry vain and idle thought
And ev’ry word I say?


We are passing away,
To that great judgment day.

Yes ev’ry secret of my heart
Shall shortly be made known;
And I receive my just desert
For all that I have done.


How careful, then, ought I to be;
With what religious fear,
Who such a strict account must give
For my behavior here.
