The Uncertainty of Life.
Ich weiss es wird mein Ende kommen
I know my end must surely come,
But know not when or where or how,
It may be I shall hear my doom
To-night, to-morrow, nay or now
Ere yet the present hour is fled,
This living body may be dead.
Lord Jesus, let me daily die,
And at the last Thy presence give,
Then Death his utmost power may try,
He can but make me truly live,
Then welcome my last hour shall be,
When, where, and how it pleases Thee.
