Hymn/Song Information

PREPARATION FOR DEATH




And is it so that I must die,
Ere long resign my fleeting breath?
Jesus, I on thy grace rely,
Who hast by dying conquered death.


Extract the tyrantís fatal sting,
Nor let a cloud obscure the day;
That I on faithís expanded wing,
May joyful mount and soar away.


Death is an entrance into life,
To those who are by grace prepared,
A stroke that ends our mortal strife,
And ushers in the great reward.


Leaning upon my Saviourís breast,
I bid adieu to every fear,
While in his arms I sink at rest,
And leave a world of sin and care.
