Hymn/Song Information

THE DYING SAINT




See, whilst the saint expiring lies,
Upward he lifts his longing eyes;
In praise he spends his latest breath,
Triumphs in pain, and sings in death.


Oh who can tell what secret power
Supports him in the gloomy hour;
What unseen hand is with him there,
Or whence proceeds that cheerful air?


A smile upon his lips appears,
His face a heavenly aspect wears;
Each grief removed, each sin forgiven,
On earth he feels the dawn of heaven.


Sinners behold, and wondering cry,
Thus, like the righteous, let me die;
But such an end they’ll never find,
Who leave not such a life behind.
