26. Weighed in the Balance

1 Weighed in the balance of justice true,
Sinful the path thou hast trod;
Weighed and found wanting—will it be you?
Weighed by the word of God.

Refrain:
Weighed and found wanting,
Weighed and found wanting,
Rejected at heaven’s door.

2 There it will hurt like a wounding dart
When this dread answer shall fall:
“Weighed and found wanting”; ’twill pierce thy heart
At the last judgment call. [Refrain]

3 Weighed by the word which is given now,
Search it and know thou art pure;
Unto its mandates in meekness bow,
Then thou shalt be secure. [Refrain]

4 At the tribunal where Christ is judge,
Where every deed is made known,
“Weighed and found wanting” each guilty soul
Stands there before His throne. [Refrain]
