Weighed in the Scales

by Janis Gaines

You’ve been weighed in the scales
And you’ve been found a’wanting
Weighed in the scales of heaven above
You’ve been weighed in the scales
And you’ve been found a’wanting
Weighed in the scales and been found without love

Listen to me, my fellow man
No matter where your journey ends
You can’t take with you what you hold in your hand
Only love will make you a rich man

You’ve been weighed in the scales
And you’ve been found a’wanting
Weighed in the scales of heaven above
You’ve been weighed in the scales
And you’ve been found a’wanting
Weighed in the scales and been found without love

How many people do you really love?
How many people do you think of?
Who will be with you through thick and thin?
How many people do you call a friend?

You’ve been weighed in the scales
And you’ve been found a’wanting
Weighed in the scales of heaven above
You’ve been weighed in the scales
And you’ve been found a’wanting
Weighed in the scales and been found without love

Jesus is the Lord of the earth
Jesus is the Lord of new birth
Jesus is from heaven above
Only Jesus can teach us to love

Well, he laid down His life
A living sacrifice
He was despised by men
But then He rose again

You’ve been weighed in the scales
And you’ve been found a’wanting
Weighed in the scales of heaven above
You’ve been weighed in the scales
And you’ve been found a’wanting
Weighed in the scales and been found without love

All these things will soon pass away
And then will come the Judgment Day
Will your labor bring you a reward?
Love is the only work you can afford
