Hymn/Song Information

And now beloved Lord thy soul resigning




And now, belovèd Lord,
Thy Soul resigning,
Into Thy Father’s arms
with conscious will,
Calmly, with reverend grace,
Thy head inclining,
The throbbing brow
and laboring breast grow still.


Freely Thy life Thou yieldest,
meekly bending
E’en to the last beneath
our sorrows’ load,
Yet strong in death,
in perfect peace commending,
Thy Spirit to Thy Father and Thy God.


My Savior, in mine hour
of mortal anguish,
When earth grows dim,
and round me falls the night,
O breathe Thy peace,
as flesh and spirit languish,
At that dread eventide
let there be light.


To Thy dear cross turn Thou
my eyes in dying;
Lay but my fainting head
upon Thy breast;
Those outstretched arms
receive my latest sighing;
And then, oh! then,
Thine everlasting rest.


O love! o’er mortal agony victorious,
Now is Thy triumph! now
that cross shall shine
To earth’s remotest age
revered and glorious,
Of suffering’s deepest
mystery the sign.


The present, past and future here
are blending,
Moment supreme
in this world’s history,
Mid darkness, opening graves,
and mountains rending,
New light is dawning on humanity.
