Hymn/Song Information

Dear as thou were and justly dear We would not




Dear as thou wast, and justly dear,
We would not weep for thee;
One thought shall check the starting tear,—
It is —that thou art free.


And thus shall faith’s consoling power
The tears of love restrain;
O, who that saw thy parting hour
Could wish thee here again?


Triumphant in thy closing eye
The hope of glory shone;
Joy breathed in thine expiring sigh
To think the fight was won.


Gently the passing spirit fled,
Sustained by grace divine;
O, may such grace on us be shed,
And make our end like thine!

It is —that thou art free.


Gently the passing spirit fled,
Sustained by grace divine;
O, may such grace on me be shed,
And make my end like thine!
