539. C. M. Anonymous. The Happy Death.
1 Lord, must we die? O let us die
Trusting in thee alone!
Our living testimony given,
Then leave our dying one.
2 If we must die, O let us die
In peace with all mankind,
And change these fleeting joys below
For pleasures all refined.
3 If we must die, -- as die we must, --
Let some kind seraph come,
And bear us on his friendly wing
To our celestial home!
4 Of Canaan's land, from Pisgah's top,
May we but have a view!
Though Jordan should o'erflow its banks,
We'll boldly venture through.
