I don't think this sounds very natural.

It's not wrong. It just sounds odd in this context.

Google results show mainly the following categories:
1. Probably written by people who don't have English as their first language.
(between 5 to 8 of the first 20 results I saw).
2. Archaic/formal language (e.g. bible quotes)
(4 of the first 20 results)
3. Used in questions
(3 of the first 20 results)

Obviously that isn't by any means conclusive, but it does back up my gut feeling somewhat.
