The hour of my departure's come I hear




The hour of my departure's come,
I hear the voice that calls me home;
At last, O Lord, let trouble cease,
Now let thy servant die in peace!


The race appointed I have run;
The combat's o'er, the prize is won;
And now my witness is on high,
And now my record's in the sky.


Not in mine innocence I trust;
I bow before thee in the dust,
And through my Saviour's blood alone
I look for mercy at thy throne.


I leave the world without a tear,
Save for the friends I held so dear;
To heal their sorrows, Lord, descend,
And to the friendless prove a friend!


I come, I come at thy command,
I yield my spirit to thy hand!
Stretch forth thy everlasting arms,
And shield me in the last alarms.


The hour of my departure's come,
I hear the voice that calls me home:
Now, O my God, let trouble cease,
Now let thy servant die in peace!


---Alternative verses---


The hour of my departure's come,
I hear the voice that calls me home;
Now, O my God, let trouble cease,
Now let thy servant die in peace!


I come, I come at thy command,
I give my spirit to thy hand!
Stretch forth thy everlasting arms,
And shield me in the last alarms.
