Hymn/Song Information

DEATH IS GAIN




When musing sorrow weeps the past,
And mourns the present pain,
íTis sweet to think of peace at last,
And feel that death is gain.


íTis not that murmuring thoughts arise,
And dread a Fatherís will,
íTis not that meek submission flies,
And would not suffer still:


It is that heaven-born faith surveys
The path that leads to light,
And longs her eagle plumes to raise,
And lose herself in sight:


It is that hope with ardour glows,
To see Him face to face,
Whose dying love no language knows
Sufficient art to trace.


It is that harassed conscience feels
The pangs of struggling sin;
And sees, though far, the hand that heals
And ends the strife within.


O let me wing my hallowed flight
From earth-born woe and care,
And soar above these clouds of night,
My Saviourís bliss to share!
