Shrinking from the cold hand of death




Shrinking from the cold hand of death,
I too shall gather up my feet,
Shall soon resign this fleeting breath,
And die, my fathers' God to meet.


Numbered among thy people, I
Expect with joy thy face to see;
Because thou didst for sinners die,
Jesus, in death remember me!


O that without a lingering groan
I may the welcome word receive!
My body with my charge lay down,
And cease at once to work and live.


No anxious doubt, no guilty gloom,
Shall damp whom Jesus' presence cheers;
My light, my life, my God is come,
And glory in his face appears!


---Alternative verses---


Walk with me through the dreadful shade
And, certified that thou art mine,
My spirit, calm and undismayed,
I shall into thy hands resign.


Shrinking from the cold hand of death,
I soon shall gather up my feet,
Shall soon resign this fleeting breath,
And die, my fathers' God to meet.
